Would you Try Persian Food? Or New Food?

I am Persian and Spanish so I can cook. In fact I can cook pretty much everything and anything. So many people tell me I should open a restaurant. My main problem is that I don't think that at this time of war and prejudices that people would try these dishes at least the Persian ones. However I have yet to find in my area a decent Persian restaurant of any sort. I wonder if this is because no one will eat it? Another problem I have with the ideal is, there is a huge difference in food taste and mixtures then the American taste. For example: Walnut Stew, Apricot stew, Parsley Stew or one meal steamed rice dishes. So my question to you is would you try Persian food and not be turned off because of unique combination's or politics?

I will try some new food, if it looks delicious and nice, politics issue definitely will not turn me off for trying anything. As for different taste, perhaps you can ask your American friends to try out the food you cook, then see how you adjust it.

My ex is Turkish and I have come to really love Mediterranean foods and I know in my area these restaurants are on the rise but I also love Afghan food and will choose that before Persian because I dont know what to expect but I discovered Afghan food by simply trying it the only thing that turns me off is when you go to eat ethnic foods and the menu does not have an english translation under the original tongue and your left to figure out what everything is.
