When the Middle Eastern holiday of spring called Nowruz arrives, we feast on kukus, or Persian frittatas.

Nowruz (also spelled Norouz and other ways) is best known as the Persian New Year, but is also celebrated in the Caucasus, in much of Central Asia and in other countries with large Iranian communities such as the US and Canada.
