Kate Leahy & Ara Zada
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. For both armchair travelers and home cooks, here's a book as enticing in the reading as its recipes are to the palate.
Cookbook author Kate Leahy and chef Ara Zada began talking about their love of Armenian cuisine in 2015; now, four years later, they are coming to Book Larder to celebrate the release of Lavash: The bread that launched 1,000 meals, plus salads, stews, and other recipes from Armenia! Join Kate and Ara for a conversation about Armenia, travel, and the versatile flatbread is so important to the country that UNESCO recognizes it as an expression of Armenian heritage. Please note the authors will sign copies of the book purchased at Book Larder.
