Lavash: The bread that launched 1,000 meals, plus salads, stews, dips, and other recipes from Armenia

Ara Zada, Kate Leahy, John Lee


With growing interest in fermentation and the medical benefits of a Mediterranean diet, Armenian food offers a new take on healthful deliciousness. It combines the best flavors and techniques of Mediterranean and central European cuisines into fresh and satisfying dishes, served with plenty of pickles, sides, and the soft, ubiquitous bread known as lavash. An ode to Armenian food and culture, Lavash is part cookbook, part travelogue, and part lookbook of tempting food and revealing atmospheric photography. More than 60 recipes—arranged by course—cover authentic breads and everything you eat with them, from soups and salads to mains and sweets. For both armchair travelers and home cooks, here’s a book as enticing in the reading as its recipes are to the palate.
