From June 1 to June 3, the first gastronomic festival with the participation of famous cooks will be organized in the city of Van in Western Armenia. The festival will be attended by 70 cooks from different regions of 5 countries, where the dishes of the Armenian cuisine of Van will be presented and culinary competitions will be held. Numerous similar events are held in various places of Western Armenia, especially at this time of year, and it would be very useful if such festivals were held not only in our occupied homeland, but also in those countries of the world where Armenians live.
