Armenian lavash included in CNN’s list of the world's 50 best breads
The American CNN channel covered the top 50 types of bread in the world, including Armenian lavash. According to the author of the article, Jen Rose Smith, if bread is easy to picture, it's hard to define.
Bread historian William Rubel argues that creating a strict definition of bread is unnecessary, even counterproductive. "Bread is basically what your culture says it is."
He wrote: "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.
