Lar is a small town on the road from Shiraz to the Persian Gulf. This delicious kabab, one of their specialties, is usually served at weddings and on religious occasions. It is traditionally made with lamb, goat, or beef loin, but I prefer it with chicken thighs. I adapted this recipe from one by Ghasem Haydari, the chef at Fulad Restaurant, one of the oldest restaurants in old-town Lar (photo of the restaurant's grill opposite). He was wonderfully generous with his knowledge and time.
