Sometime in July, my cousin and I were visiting another family member who is dealing with some serious health issues. He expressed how much he used to love Armenian food, but all the family and friends who used to make and share it were gone.
As you may know from past posts, I’ve been experimenting over the last year with re-learning Armenian cooking. I had the privilege of being invited to participate in preparations for the annual festival at St. Peter’s Armenian Church in Watervliet, NY, and I learned so much there about techniques!
What better way to test my “training” and practice than to prepare a monumentally memorable Armenian feast?
I spent much of August and September preparing and freezing foods. I believe it’s safe to say there are no quick or easy Armenian recipes – only ranges of time consuming. But my efforts were rewarded with a memorable feast and rave reviews. Pictured here are the culinary delights and menu:
I challenge you to match the foods with the menu!
