Khash is a liquid hot soup, one of the ancient Armenian dishes. The name "Khash" originated from the Armenian word "khashel", the names of other dishes (khashlama, khashu, khashil) originated from the same word. In Armenian literature, broth is referred to as "khashou" or "khashoy" since the 11th century, for the first time in the work "Relief of Fevers" by Grigor Magistros.
Making khash is a whole ritual, when men gather in the evening and cook the food on a low heat all night.
Beef legs are mainly used in the preparation of khash. The dish is traditionally eaten early in the morning, before breakfast, or instead in the cold weather of the year, in autumn, winter and early spring.
Armenian wines: a hidden gem for wine enthusiasts
Armenia has a long and rich history of winemaking, dating back thousands of years. Today, Armenian wines are a hidden gem for wine enthusiasts and are becoming increasingly popular among tourists who want to experience something unique and special.
Wine production occupies a special place in Armenia. During archaeological excavations in 2007 in a cave known as the Areni-1 (Bird's) Cave, near the village of Areni, a group of Armenian and Irish archaeologists discovered the world's oldest winery, which testifies that wine was produced in Armenia 6000 years ago. In the winery, vessels with the remains of wine, grape seeds, and winemaking tools were found: fermentation barrels, a wine press, storage jugs, and pot shards.
