Conversation Starters to Kick Off The Persian New Year

March 17, 2022

Nowruz Mobarak! (Happy New Year!) To help get you and your family in the spirit of celebrating the Persian New Year, these latest conversation starters are inspired by our delicious new Persian menu items and our partnership with masters of Persian cooking, Bita Arabian and Beata Nazem Kelley.

Dinnerbell’s conversation starters are a way to make sit-down family meals even more fun by sharing questions and jokes to keep your whole crew engaged. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, having a mindful dinner conversation can sometimes be a challenge, so we’re here to help. Plus, when you let Dinnerbell handle the cooking, you’ll have even more time to focus on what matters: connecting – and having fun – with loved ones.
