''Panrkhash'' is an old Armenian national dish, which is very typical to the people of Shirak region.
This dish, like other traditional dishes of Armenia, has a unique way and ritual of making, serving, and eventually eating. The name of the dish explains itself. It translates into “boil the cheese” in Armenian. The main ingredient is the very popular “chechil” cheese along with lavash, onions, pure animal fat, and boiled water.
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. Situations have been documented in the cave, which are obviously connected with the burial ritual and the production of wine. It dates back to 4000-3800 BC. and is considered to be the oldest in the world. According to the biblical legend, Noah descended Mount Ararat and planted a vine - this was the beginning of the winemaking tradition in the territory of modern Armenia.
