Persian cuisine is famous for having a variety of different breads (Naan s), pastries (Shirini) and desserts. In comparison with European culture breads, Persian breads are thinner and many of them are flat. Persian pastries are categorized in two main categories of Dry and Wet (with cream) Pastries.  Beside the wet and dry pastries, there are several sweet desserts in Persian cuisine, such as Halva, Sohan, Gaz and Sholeh Zard.
