It's time to save Armenian national dishes from 'occupants'

  • Friday, September 23, 22:18

It's time to save the Armenian national dishes, President of the "Preservation and Development of Armenian Culinary Traditions" Public Organization Sedrak Mamulyan said during a press-conference on Friday.

He said that many Armenian dishes have been appropriated by the neighboring nations: Georgia, Iran, Turkey and Azerbaijan. "The Georgians have 'privatized' our khash, the Azeris - piti, the Turks, Arabs and Moldovans - tolma. We have done nothing to patent our national dishes. But I hope to restore justice by means of a thorough study," Mamulyan said.

He said that quite recently Azeri President Ilham Aliyev said that tolma is an Azeri dish. "A month later we held a festival of tolma in Armenia. We presented as many as 72 recipes and explained that the word 'tolma' comes from the ancient Armenian 'toli' - grape vine.  CNN broadcast that event twice. After that all allegations that tolma is not an Armenian dish stopped," Mamulyan said.

He said that in order to find the truth one should go to remote Armenian villages, where people still remember ancient cooking technologies. "In three villages of Aparan we found so many interesting dishes and technologies that 10 cooks spent 2 months to study them all out. Our grandmas have invaluable knowledge, which has been passed from generation to generation," Mamulyan said.
