Abstract: 

The food culture of Iranian people has been an aspect of Iranians’ everyday life which in spite of throughout changes that were the result of officialization of Shi’ism, has not been so shifted or modified. In fact, Shi’ism couldn’t be supposed as an effective factor in making any religion-based change in nutrition system of the ordinary people at this period. Nevertheless, along with the Islamic general recommendations about eating rites (adab al-akl) and the pattern of proper and improper acts /rights and wrongs which believers were supposed to consider in their food behaviors, some Shiite teachings and particularly the religious occasions have formed some food habits of Safavid-Qajarid people or at least have resulted in some certain regulations in these habits. Upon this survey, most of these teachings are originated in general Islamic tradition and the resulted changes of Shiite teachings, are mainly manifested in public feedings and vow (“nadhr”s) rites in Shiite temporal or local situations, mostly in a popular religion approach.
