Sohan, a traditional Persian saffron brittle toffee, hails from Qom, Iran, with a tale of royal endorsement by Naser al-Din Shah Qajar. Originally crafted by women, Sohan's recipe remained a closely guarded secret, passed down through generations. Its various types include Sohan Halwa, Sohan Asali (honeyed brittle), sesame brittle, and Sohan Gaz (gaz brittle). The mysterious aspect of Sohan lies in the unique methods used to weigh ingredients, ranging from stones to shoes. This exquisite Persian dessert, known for its rich flavors, features a delightful combination of saffron, nuts, honey, and cardamom. It is a symbol of Iranian hospitality, cultural heritage, and festivity, often shared with guests during celebrations and cherished as a piece of Iran's culinary history.
