Armenian lavash on CNN’s list of world’s best breads
STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 17,  ARTSAKHPRESS: The list includes the traditional breads of Afghanistan, Brazil, Egypt, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Chile, China, Ethiopia, etc.
The Armenian bread comes second on the CNN list.
"When your Armenian mother-in-law comes towards you wielding a hula hoop-sized flatbread, don't duck: Lavash is draped over the country's newlyweds to ensure a life of abundance and prosperity," CNN said in an article.
"Maybe that's because making lavash takes friends."
"To shape the traditional breads, groups of women gather to roll and stretch dough across a cushion padded with hay or wool. It takes a practiced hand to slap the enormous sheets onto the inside of conical clay ovens, where they bake quickly in the intense heat," it noted.
"The bread is so central to Armenia's culture it's been designated UNESCO Intangible Heritage,' reports CNN.
