Thanks to all who contributed their recipes to this cookbook; especially to those talented cooks who have always cooked "achkee chahp" (by the eye) and took the time to measure and test their recipes before submitting them.

Thanks also to the many typists, proofreaders and aides who helped in the many miscellaneous jobs that were necessary in compiling this cookbook.

All proceeds from the sale of this cookbook will benefit St. Gregory's Armenian Apostolic Church of Indian Orchard, Massachusetts.

1973


There is a wonderful touch of many Near Eastern cultures intermingled with Armenian cooking.

An Armenian cookbook would not be complete without acknowledging the influence, throughout the years, of Greek, Turkish, Syrian, Persian and Arabic neighbors.

Although the origin is not always clear, there is no doubt about the excitement, warmth and good taste to be found in Armenian cooking.
