It's that time of year again.
The Eurovision song contest was held on the weekend. Do you watch it?
You may have read here last year, of our tradition to cook food from the host country each year.
This year it was Azerbaijan! A small country bordered by Russia, Georgia, Armenia, Iran and the Caspian Sea. What amazing cultural influences and such diverse and delicious food.
This year we only cooked Azerbaijani food on one night (last night), for the Final. However, I doubt this will be the last you see of Azerbaijani food on this blog. I have gathered quiet a list of yummy recipes to try, many indulging in my love of pomegranate molasses.
Here is our menu from last night:
Basturma - Marinated Beef Kebabs
Karabakh Khorovats - Marinated Pork Kebabs
Fesinjan Kyufta - Meatballs in Pomegranate Sauce
Kutaby - Stuffed Pancake
Azerbaijani Cabbage Salad
Azerbaijani Tomato and Cucumber Salad
Firni - Rice Pudding
I'll post some recipes later on in the week.
