"Lavash takes readers on a colorful culinary journey to
Armenia, past and present. From its investigation into the history
of that part of the world to its vivid images and diverse recipes,
this book explores what Armenian cuisine looks like today in a very
authentic and beautiful way."--Marcus Samuelsson, award-winning

"At last, Armenian food gets its due! Lavash takes us on a captivating journey through Armenia, sharing stories of this ancient land's history and people, along with the secrets of its remarkable cuisine. The flatbread recipes alone are worth the price of the book, but there's so much more revealed here--piquant salads, whole-grain porridges, and soothing soups and stews. This eye-opening book belongs on every library shelf and kitchen counter."--Darra Goldstein, Founding Editor of Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture
