Genealogy of Armenian Recipes; Mapping the Armenian Homeland Mari Firkatian
A map of any modern-day country will not tell you its history but its food will. Why is mantu made shaped in tiny boats in Europe but shaped in tiny square parcels in Asia? Can we trace our ancestor’s places of origin from the ingredients they used? Yes. To this day, the boundaries defined by food and language often reflect the differences between people much more accurately that the lines drawn arbitrarily on maps. I will present a case for creating and building a genealogy of Armenian recipes by collecting every recipe passed down by families; that fragile link to our past that must be carefully preserved as much as any family genealogical chart.
