Eggplant and Whey

This is, bar none, the most beautiful presentation of kashk baedemjan (fried eggplant and why) I have ever seen. The classic Persian appetizer has gotten the ultimate Western treatment. I shall report on whether the results tasted as good as they look.

Update: yes, it was very tasty, but not as flavorful as the presentation would suggest. It was a tad on the dry side. Eggplants grown off season are rarely as flavorful as those harvested during their normal cycle.
