Armenian Lavash

 Armenian Bread Lavash
Armenian cuisine is very popular with its traditional bread called lavash.  It is flat, thin and soft bread that can be dried and kept for quite a long term. Lavash  forms an integral part of Armenian cuisine. It is the most widespread bread in Armenia and no festive table can be imagined without lavash.
 
The ingredients may be easy to get hold of (flour, water, salt) but making lavash requires a good deal of agility, skill, coordination and experience.
Lavash symbolizes life and wisdom. In ancient times, lavash was used during battles as it lasted long and saved the soldiers from starvation. Mothers cooked lavash, dried it and put in the bags of the soldiers
 
In 2014  “Lavash, the preparation, meaning and appearance of traditional bread as an expression of Armenian culture” has been put on the UNESCO  Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
