Food from Azerbaijan

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.


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what's happening in your kitchen. If you've tried one of my recipes, I'd like to know what you thought? Do you have some advice to make it better? Did you find a mistake? Perhaps it is a new favourite in your home?
