Lavash – Armenian bread

Probably one thing that Armenians wouldn’t forget when they sit at the table is bread. One thing that you will always notice in every Armenian table is a great amount of bread.

Lavash is a traditional Armenian thin bread that represents our national cuisine and originates from Ancient Armenia.

Lavash is a soft, thin unleavened flatbread made in a tandoor and eaten all over the South Caucasus.

In 2014, “Lavash, the preparation, meaning and appearance of traditional bread as an expression of culture in Armenia” was inscribed in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Want to know what dish is impossible to imagine without this flatbread? Definitely Armenian Khash! For this dish, we dry the lists of bread beforehand and serve it with the dish. Then we add pour the dried parts into the Khash adding garlic and salt. That’s it! Khash is ready!
Two kings of Armenian cuisine come together when we are going to make the king Barbeque. According to the tradition, Khorovats becomes tasty when we put a few lists of Lavash under the deep oven (for gathering barbeque) and when we have done it we close them again with it.
I promise you’re not going to forget that taste. Though the pride of the Armenian cuisine has a rich history and ancient origin, it still remains the top symbol of national dishes.
