Armenia, here we come!

That's right, The Armenian Kitchen is traveling to … Yerevan!
By the time you read this, Doug and I will be on the first leg of a 3-country journey.

Our first stop takes us to England, where we will attend the London Book Fair.  Doug has been invited to serve as the American-Armenian Writer’s Guild representative at the Armenian Pavilion. The highlight of this 3-day event will be Doug’s presentation of his book, “Stories My Father Never Finished Telling Me”. Truly a great honor!

From there we visit relatives in France. Ah, springtime in Paris!  Then on to Yerevan, in time to participate in the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide! We’ll be meeting up with a life-long friend, hope meet a cousin I’ve only heard about, and, at long-last, will meet Sonia Tashjian, one of my Armenian Kitchen contributors! 

We’ll do as much exploring as our creaky bones will allow before heading home.

I’m sure we’ll have plenty of food-stories to share, so please stay tuned!


  1. Enjoy and bring back some receipes that were little known.

  2. Oooh! Being there for the anniversary of the genocide sounds like a great honor.

  3. Bless you and Doug on your journey! I just bought his book in Kindle and look forward to understanding more. I live in Jerusalem and will visit my Armenian friend soon to honor his Father (who survived) and his Family (who did not)

    1. Thank you so much for your blessings and for purchasing Doug's book; we hope you enjoy it! Our trip is complete, but our memories will remain in our hearts and minds forever. Have a wonderful visit with your Armenian friend.
