Aline Kamakian, passionate cook and co-owner of the famed Mayrig restaurant in Beirut, traveled with Belgian writer and anthropologist Barbara Drieskens to her ancestral homeland of Cilicia, Historical Armenia (southeastern Turkey), where many of the recipes in the book originated. There they gathered stories, recipes and vibrant images that add to the rich history of passing on, from mother to daughter, an entire culture through food. The book includes over 130 of the most popular Armenia recipes with photographs throughout.
