A lesson in Armenian cuisine

Victoria Jenanyan Wise of Oakland, Calif., shares her heritage and
treasured family recipes in The Armenian Table (St. Martin’s Press;
$29.95).

The cookbook, Wise’s 13th, contains more than 165 recipes, a mix of
traditional signature favorites along with inspired, innovative and
contemporary variations on the theme. For cooks, it’s Armenian 101
and more — a great way to learn about the cuisine.

Wise made a concerted effort to make the recipes approachable and
easy to execute. Particularly interesting are her notes accompanying
each recipe and her from-scratch renditions of yogurt, lavosh, mock
basterma and lahmajoun.
