In her eleventh cookbook-and her first on Armenian food–Wise collects traditional favorites and inspired contemporary variations. Recipes include:
-Lavosh, Armenian pizzas, and other savory breads
-Shish kebab, moussaka, and other lamb dishes
-Baked and roast chicken prepared with yogurt, dill, turmeric, pomegranate, and more
-Grilled mackerel with lemon and dill; red snapper stew with tomato and artichokes
