• I fell in love with cooking at a very early age, but hardly had a chance to cook until I was married. My childhood hobby was to look through my mom's cookbooks, which today have found a new home in my extensive cookbook collection. Needless to say, my kitchen has been open 24/7 for the last 29 years. Family and friends gravitate to my kitchen and find it to be an inviting and welcoming hangout spot.With an exotic Brazilian flare and a traditional Armenian touch, my dishes touch the heart as well as the palate.
