Food & Culture Writer Joel Denker’s Story about Lahmajoun

I was recently introduced to the written work of Joel Denker by his wife, Peggy. She asked me for permission to use my photo of kadaif in an article Joel was writing about Armenian Pizza – aka lahmajoun. I was delighted to share. Once completed, she sent me his article – a fascinating read!

Joel, a man with a passion for knowledge in the history and culture of ethnic food, has invited me to share his story with readers of The Armenian Kitchen. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
