Food for an Azerbaijani Party

A classic Azerbaijani dinner party typically lasts for several hours and always begins with tea. After tea, salads and snacks are served, followed by soup, which often contains meat, fish, or chicken. The main course is served next and is also prepared with meat, poultry, and fish. There area many fish native to the Caspian Sea, so Azerbaijan has a wide range of fish dishes, including fish Kebabs, fish soups, baked, fried, boiled and stewed fish, and Pilaf with fish.

Pilaf - or Plov - is regarded by many as Azerbaijan's national dish, and sometimes referred to as "the king of all dishes". It is always served at the center of the table at a dinner party or celebration meal. Typically, if the previous course was fish, the pilaf would contain meat, or vice versa.

The main meat in Azerbaijani cuisine is lamb, but veal and chicken are used as well. Kebabs - usually consisting of lamb cooked on skewers over a barbecue - are also extremely popular. Kebabs made with chicken, fish, game, and vegetables are very common in Azerbaijan as well. Narsharab, a sweet and sour sauce made from pomegranate, is often served with kebabs.

At the end of the meal, tea is served again with the nationís famous sweet pastries such as Pakhlava.

Drink for an Azerbaijani Party

Without a doubt Black Tea is Azerbaijan's favourite drink, consumed on almost any and every occasion, often in unique pear-shaped glasses called Armudu. It's usually brewed quite strong, without milk, and wild herbs such as thyme, mint or sage are often added to the tea.

Another Azerbaijani favourite are sherbets, made from fruit juices, water and sugar, and sometimes perfumed with rose water. Lemon, strawberry, apricot, pomegranate, plum and cherry are common flavours, but often more than one fruit jusice is used to create a sort of fruit juice cocktail.
