Here's a series of preview clips from this upcoming Sunday's episode of Anthony Bourdain's CNN show Parts Unknown. Bourdain and his crew head to Iran which feels "neither East nor West, but always somewhere in the middle." There he explores a huge local market where vendors sell everything from fine Persian rugs to fragrant flowers, and discusses the dichotomy between Iran's history and traditions and its current "ruling class." Bourdain also manages to be invited to not one, but two feasts where he eats platefuls of traditional dishes including slow cooked lamb in yogurt, sour cherry rice, and milk and chicken stew.
