Simply Armenian : naturally healthy ethnic cooking made easy / Barbara Ghazarian.
Monterey, Calif. : Mayreni Pub., 2004.
[MCL call number: 641.59566 G411s 2004; six copies, no holds]

The Armenian Orthodox calendar contains nearly 200 feast days, which means that observant Armenian Christians must forgo meat for nearly half the year. Bulgur wheat, lentils, yogurt, nuts, olive oil, eggplant, and other delightful ingredients dominate in Ghazarian’s introduction to Armenian cuisine — though there are few meat dishes included for those of you who prefer that sort of thing. Ghazarian provides dozens of easy-to-prepare traditional recipes (and a few creations of her own) for appetizers, main dishes, desserts, beverages, and more. Undoubtedly there are other good Armenian cookbooks, but this is the one I saw first and I like it. Yum!
