Bread is the most important food in Iran. It is baked in large clay ovens. Many
dishes are made from dairy products. Yogurt is a popular food as well as rice dishes that include meats, vegetables and seasonings. Lamb is a typical food.
Iranians love the dessert baklava and, of course, tea. There are many traditional tea-houses throughout the country where different teas, desserts and regional foods are served.
