The Summer of Lavash

The food item of the summer has been Lavash, the Armenia-Georgian bread. I saw it back in my old Cherkassy days, in 1993. Then it was sold on the street by an Armenian family. It was the highlight of the Cherkassy food scene. Lavash is now available in most Kyiv’s supermarkets, both the thick version and the very thin, soft version. It has hit the main stream, McDonalds is now featuring a “McLavash” sandwich, and a “Chicken McLavash”.

Mmmmmm. That Cherkassy lavash was yummy! I carried loads of it back to Kyiv with me whenever I visited. Glad you can get it in Kyiv now without the drive. That is progress.

Just to make a correction to your post: Lavash is Armenian national bread, it has nothing to do with Georgians. Anyway, good to see Armenian food becoming more widely available in E. Europe.
