Multi Kulti Kitchen – Armenia in Pazardzhik

Interesting and delicious – this describes best the first cultural-culinary evening “Multi Kulti Kitchen – Armenia in Pazardzhik”. The meeting was devoted to the Armenian culture and cuisine with the help of kind hosts from the Armenian community in Pazardzhik and took place in the new Armenian cultural club "Arto Buzdigian" on 24th March 2018.

The guests were introduced to the brightest and most emblematic symbols of Armenia, which every Armenian carries in his heart, wherever he lives. Dr. Eksa Buszigyan told personal and very interesting stories to the guests, the businessman Max Kumruyan shared the secrets of the master-appetizers, prepared at "Garo M", and the chairman of the Church Board of Trustees - journalist Nerses Shirnyan entertained the audience with his latest "Bulgarian-Armenian fairytale".

The amiable Armenian cooks Gergana and Pepa Hugasian, Kohar Matevsian, Shushanik Vartanian, Lala Jamalian, and Eksa Buszigyan revealed the recipes for their delicacies such as "Manty", 'Gata", 'Keskek", "Anushabur", "Sheker Lokma", "Dolma", "Balsuzuk".

The Multicultural Kitchen project is implemented by the Association for Independent Creative Communication and Youth House Pazardzhik and is part of the program of Plovdiv - European Capital of Culture 2019.

It purposefully provokes us to try and prepare interesting and tasty dishes, at the same time enabling migrants and different ethnic groups to present the exquisiteness of their cuisine and culture. The project will take place in 2018 and 2019 in Pazardzhik and Plovdiv.

The project reflects the advantages and barriers emerging out of belonging to a cultural and ethnic community. The project activities respect the basic and most important principles on which the intercultural attitude is based. We want to achieve assurance, respect, experience of identity, dialogue with the other, change and an overall commitment through the direct meeting between Bulgarians and foreigners.
