National Geographic: Travellers should make sure to come to Armenia with empty stomachs

19:28, March 20

National Geographic has published an article on Armenian wines and gastronomic delights.

“This small country at the crossroad of Europe and Asia draws on culinary influences from all over Europe, the Middle East and the Levant to serve up a menu of mouth-watering dishes — think harissa, a savoury chicken porridge not dissimilar to a risotto; manti, a delicious baked dumpling; or ghapama, a pumpkin stuffed with boiled rice, dried fruits and nuts.

A nation of food-lovers, Armenians attach great value to ancestral recipes and home cooking, so travellers should make sure to come with open minds and empty stomachs,” the authors said. “Armenia’s wine scene is vibrant and waiting to be discovered. Wine lovers can venture to several viticultural regions, including Aragatsotn, Tavush, Armavir and Ararat.”

“Alternatively, soak up Armenian wine culture by attending one of many wine events. Options include Yerevan Wine Days, a two-day street festival held at the beginning of May; Voskevaz Wine Festival in August; and Areni Wine Festival in October.”

As for the dishes, Nat Geo offers five to try: ghapama, dolma, manti, khorovats, lavash.

According to the authors, “lavash is considered Armenia’s signature.”
