Armenia: Khash Ceremony

Categories: Central Asia & Caucasus, Armenia, Food

With the winter setting in, Notes from Hairenik recounts his participation yesterday in the seasonal consumption of Khash [1], a “soup laden with fat slowly simmered for at least eight hours made from cow’s hoof, with cartilage and some meat still left on the bone.” Eating khash is a group event and usually washed down with the obligatory vodka.
