a taste of armenia

Posted by

Went to a fundraising dinner tonight in the Armenian part of town, thanks to my food-writer friend. The Armenian community is quite strong in its own right here, interestingly so, as Argentina was the first country to recognize Armenia when it declared independence.

Anyway for these dinners, which have been happening every Friday for 25 years or so, the mothers and grandmothers cook, the kids serve, and all the money goes towards sending the kids (who have grown up here) back to their homeland for vacations in the summer. Neat idea. Great food. You can see the venue in Chris' post.

This is as good a time as any to also mention that Chris and I are starting up a food blog. We both love cooking and discovering new recipes and techniques, and also experiencing food the world over. It's a little slow now, what with trying to get organized around here, but once we get traveling, it'll pick up. I've also got some back entries to put in. Keep an eye on it for more food pictures, some reviews of places we eat at and like, recipes we learn along the way, and commentary on the culture of food we encounter.

Oh yeah, the address. A Taste of the World. Buen provecha! (literally, good burps!)
