We always gain a deep satisfaction from preparing exotic, international foods in our own kitchen, isn’t it? Here is your chance to make Lavash, the all-time Mediterranean favourite. With mild scents of olive oil and the strong aroma of toasted sesame, Lavash is a bread par excellence. Bake them fresh, allow them to cool and turn crispy, then serve with a cheesy or tangy accompaniment. The taunting aroma of freshly baked bread is sure to make one overeat!
