I love a good cookbook, especially those created by church organizations, and if it’s an Armenian church cookbook, even better!
When Christine Datian informed me about another Armenian Church cookbook she’d discovered, I was eager to learn more. What she found was a cookbook from the First Armenian Presbyterian Church of Fresno, CA called “A Hundred Years and Still Cooking”.
Christine passed along the following review:
A bit of background:
Food writer Barbara Hansen, a James Beard Award winner, reviewed the volume in the January 14, 1998 edition of The Los Angeles Times under the headline, “Leaves from Fresno.” This prized cookbook is a unique compendium of Armenian heritage recipes, Scriptural truths, Old World culinary precepts, and Central California ethnic history.
