Now that I’m at the JFK airport, it’s hard to believe that this was my view Saturday evening while eating trout at Lake Sevan, the largest lake in Armenia. It was the end of our first research trip with our amazing road-warrior food friends from @tumocenter. We’ll back soon. #lavashthebook

Beans from Goris are some of the best in Armenia, which is just one of the many facts I’m learning as I research recipes for #lavashthebook with @johnleepictures and @arazada ... for more scenes from our Armenian lavash route, see my Insta-takeover on @tumocenter

Lavash research continues. These ladies were true pros. There are five of them: one makes the dough and shapes it into balls, one rolls it out with a rolling pin, one stretches it into thin sheet and lays it on a pillow before flattening it into the side of the tonir, and one removes it with a hook and ensures it’s baked through. And then one woman sells it to people who drive up. They sell out every day. We had Armenian coffee with them and ate steaming hot potatoes wrapped in fresh lavash with pickles. Across the way is a house where a woman stores arishta, a type of pasta, for the winter. #lavashthebook

Making Arishta in Armenia. On weekends, people come to this village on the way to Lusakert to stock up on this pasta, which is made with a dough that’s almost like salty lavash dough. (The town is also known for lavash- a sign said “fresh lavash, 100 dram.”) It’s dried for a couple of days and then toasted. Before it’s cooked, it tastes like grissini. Wow #lavashthebook lavashthebook

Day one, Yerevan: visited Matenadaran, an ancient book library, ate poppyseed cake to kick jetlag to the curb, toured the wonderful world of @tumocenter and ended with a meal at Bureaucrat, a bookstore/cafe in a hipster street, with local wines and sorrel salad. #lavashthebook

How charming is this cookbook? Rachel Hogrogian’s tribute to Armenian home cooking originally came out in 1976, but this edition was printed in 2014. (Also: one more week before we head to Yerevan to start researching #lavashthebook )
