Among The Rice Paddies of Iran - Gilan's Rice Season
Rice has always been the staple food of the Iranian people, and it plays a crucial role as the essence of Iranian life.

Iran is located in the mid-latitude belt of arid and semi-arid regions of the Earth but ذecause of the coastal weather in northern Iran the two northern provinces of Gilan and Mazandaran are home to a majority of Iran’s paddy fields.

The usage of rice, at first a specialty of Safavid Empire’s court cuisine, evolved by the end of the 16th century CE into a major branch of Iranian cookery. Traditionally, rice was most prevalent as a major staple item in northern Iran and the homes of the wealthy, while bread was the dominant staple in the rest of the country.
