Khorovats (barbeque) is the first human made delicacy. In this sense it is a universal dish. But for the Armenians it has a ritual meaning. Khoravats is the most loved dish, and as a rule it is served to the honorable guests. In the Northern region of Armenia, inAghtala, every year in September there is a regional Khorovats festival. Our participants are cooks from well- known restaurants,besides we have visitors from Russia, Georgia and Greece.
As a result of the past festival we have many khorovats (barbeque) recipes represented by the cooks. There is a Barbeque cookery book representingmany recipes and is translated into three languages -Armenian, Russian and English.
