Middle Easter/Mediterranean Food links plus Armenian tucker is go!

After playing Middle Easter cuisine dilettante for over 40 years I recently came upon Armenian food and was much taken with this quick recipe for pizza: Lahmajoun! (LINK)

We love the stuff!

What strikes me about Armenian tucker is the easy access to the DIY. and the great taste (of course).

Robyn Kalajian enriches the telling in the culture context and her site is one of my fav go-to recipe sites now.

More broadly: here are some of my favorite regional sites that I draw on frequently:

Binnurs Turkish Cookbook

My Little Expat Kitchen

Olive Tomato

Organically Greek

My Greek Dish

Persian Mama

Turmeric and Saffron

Luigi's Taste of Italy

For more on Lahmajoun:

I reckon that a  recipe without cultural context is not worth the cooking.

Four links now gone into my book marks.  Thanks Dave.
