The complete Armenian Cookbook
By Alice Bezjian
This massive book is chock full of gourmet recipes from the equivalent of our own Betty Crocker.
Inlcuding timeless photographs of traditional serving dishes. Here is an exerpt:
"Most of these recipes have been in the family for years, dating back 70-80 years. Some are my own creations, some are favorites of my family and friends for over 40 years.
All the old recipes are adapted to the American kitchen.
For example, one old recipe reads: "Use enough meat for your family, a little tomato and some spices."
there were few measurements, very vaguely hand written in Armenia some 70-80 years ago.
It took me four years of hard work to try each and every recipe, using available ingredients and exact measurements. Most important of all, I have elevated the Middle Eastern cooking to the level of Haute cuisine. I am not merely concerned with taste, but I try to give every dish a unique, creative gourmet touch.
The recipes can easily be executed by a beginner, as they are very simple to follow. They would also appeal to the more experienced and sophisticated cook who does a great deal of entertaining."
