Ghorma & Kebab Festival in Mehriz
Next, we want to get to know more about Qorma, this delicious element of Iranian dish, and to learn more about the Qorma and Mehriz Festival. Qorma refers to pieces of meat that are divided into small pieces, which are prepared in a special way. In the past, when refrigerators had not yet been invented, many people, especially in the desert sliced and fried the meat, salted it, and poured it into large jars and stored in their basements or springhouse. In this way the meat stays healthy for a long time and always has meat ready for food.
But due to this kind of festival every year a festival called Qorma & Kebab Festival has been held in Mehriz city since 2018 and it is an excuse to try the local food in Mehriz and Yazd.
