Azerbaijani cuisine

  • Project

In 2009, the Heydar Aliyev Foundation published a booklet in English about the Azerbaijani cuisine. Being one of the richest and tasteful cuisines of the world, the Azerbaijani cuisine has been an integral part of the country’s centuries old culture. The modern Azerbaijani cuisine has been formed for millennia by our ancestors living in the modern Republic of Azerbaijan and those that had lived in the Southern Azerbaijan (now northern  provinces of Iran), Iravan Khanate (now Armenia), Borchaly (Georgia), Derbend (Dagestan Autonomous Republic) and other territories of the region.

The booklet contains general information about the Azerbaijani cuisine, and talks of the methods of preparation and specific features of various dishes, sweets and drinks.
