Thanksgiving Recipes Showcase our Armenian Heritage

Thanksgiving is a decidedly American holiday highlighted by the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and football games. Golden, overstuffed turkeys, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and green bean casseroles will be prominently displayed on festively set tables across this great land.

Then there’s the Armenian-American version of Thanksgiving. We celebrate for exactly the same reasons as our American brothers and sisters: our gratitude for good health, food, shelter, family, friends, and freedom.
But we celebrate with a twist.

An Armenian holiday table would be incomplete without at least a few of our treasured favorites – yalanchi, boregs, basterma, hummus, midia dolma, nuts, dried apricots, kufteh, paklava, well you get the idea!

We wish you ALL, a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING from our Armenian Kitchen to yours!
