Matzah, the central symbolic food of the Passover seder, reminds us of the enslavement, uprising, and redemption of the Jewish people long ago. Not far from where the ancient Israelites were escaping Egyptian tyranny, the Armenian people were writing their own story while perfecting what would become their own national bread—lavash. Reimagine freedom this Passover by celebrating the culture, cuisine and history of Armenia with the authors of Lavash: The Bread That Launched 1,000 Meals. Kate Leahy, Jon Lee and Ara Zada share the story of a country and a people with a complex, tragic, heroic history, and the ubiquitous flatbread that continues to unite and inspire Armenians around the world. Sample a traditional yet innovative Armenian tasting menu prepared by local chefs Laura and Sayat Ozyilmaz.

While some dishes are vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten-free, the entire tasting menu will not be. We are unable to accommodate substitutions.

New book for children: Parev, Yerevan: An Armenian Children’s Book

Parev, Yerevan is a fun, engaging, and educational board book in Armenian about Yerevan. Beautifully illustrated, it takes the reader through well-known sites in Yerevan and showcases Armenian culture and history in a simple and captivating manner. It exposes children to both the Armenian language and the spirit of Armenia. This is a great introduction to Yerevan for young children!

My goal is to expose children to the Armenian language and help foster a connection to Armenia at a young age. Since there are very few board books in Armenia, this book is an ideal engagement tool for young children.
