Uzbek cuisine?

Hello all, I've only just suscribed, although have been following the site for years. No idea why it took me so long (probably because I knew I'd get embroiled in all sorts of fascinating foodie discussions instead of working!). Anyway, to the point: I have recently returned from a business trip to Moscow and ate in an Uzbek restaurant. The food (and decor/atmosphere) was fantastic - the food is something between Russian & Arabic (roughly..). I'd love to learn more about the food and have some recipes if there's anyone out there who is either from there or has connections there. Thanks! Erika

I've never been to Uzbekistan but I have Turkish friends who go regularly. Turkey lies between Russia and Iran so maybe you should have a look at Turkish cuisine and see if it is similar to the food that you long to recreate. The Ottaman empire stretched across vast territories and its food was reknowned. Hopefully this will help you to find what you are looking for. chillie

Uzbek Cuisine

Hello Erika, welcome on board :0)


http://www.uzbekcuisine.com/ this link will give you recipes I think you are looking for, I hope so.

Used to have a couple of young ladies, staying with my neighbour, who came from Kazakhstan (sp) while they were studing in the UK. They used to bring some interesting foodstuffs and wine over.

Dear Chillie & Biggles, thanks so much for your helpful comments. I had a quick glance at the site and it looks fascinating. Have just returned to work from an extended Greek Easter - basically an eating and drinking orgy lasting several days - and am trying to chip away at the email mountain which grew in my absence :-) So when I have a bit of free time, will investigate the site in more detail, and look forward to trying out some of the recipes. As you say, the Ottomans got around a bit, so there are many similartities between Greek-Turkish-Middle Eastern-Balkans cuisine - all of which I LOVE!! BTW, I made tsoureki (traditional sweet bread)this Easter and it was divine (though I say so myself ;-)), so will post the recipe.
