Did you ever wonder what Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian like to cook? Apparently millions of people do. They have a family-secret recipe, Beeshee, an Armenian pancake, that they wrote about recently. But sharing the recipe with their adoring public was another matter.
Minna, an enterprising Kardashian fan, googled the word “Beeshee” but found nothing. Then she found my website, but not the recipe, so she wrote to me asking if I had a recipe for this Armenian pancake. (This was my first Kim Kardashian- related recipe request. Considering how the Kardashian’s are expressing their Armenian-ism these days, I’m surprised no one ever tried to connect them with TheArmenianKitchen.com before. This is a first!)

” making my famous Armenian breakfast called Beeshee. My grandmother on my dad’s side taught me how to make it and I am the only person in our family who knows how. You have to make it the night before, let the dough rise, and then prepare it in the morning, which Khloe always does. So we do it together as a team effort haha. Because it is a bit of a process, we only make it on special occasions, and every year for Father’s Day, my dad would ask us to make him Beeshee…and of course we always did. It is so delicious and fattening! It’s basically like a thin, crispy fried pancake that you pour tons of sugar on.’ Thanks.”
I was surprised when Minna couldn’t find Beeshee (I spelled it B-i-s-h-i) on my website because I’d written about it back in November, as a request by reader Margie. After sending the recipe, Margie made it, and took photos, which we posted on the blog.
The reason Minna couldn’t find it was because I never linked the recipe name to the story. My mistake; sorry!
I’m sure this recipe can’t be too different from the Kardashian’s.
So, Minna, and the rest of you Kardashian fans, check out the recipe, try it, and let TheArmenianKitchen.com know how you like it. We’d love to hear your comments.
