More about Lavash This versatile flatbread is so important to the country that UNESCO recognizes it as an expression of Armenian heritage.
In Lavash, we first show how to make this bread at home and then we share the many dishes it enhances, from soups and stews to grilled meats, vegetables, and dessert. Alongside recipes are essays and photography that offer windows into the Armenia of the 21st century. But at its core, Lavash is a celebration of breaking bread with friends and family, which is an intrinsic value of this resilient, beautiful country.
