Happy Novruz! Happy Spring! Happy New Beginnings!

Happy Novruz! Happy Spring! Happy New Beginnings!

Spring is here and it means Novruz to Azerbaijan and several other countries around the world. It is time to celebrate the arrival of spring, the nature’s awakening, new life and new beginnings. Semeni, sprouted wheat, is the symbolf of this holiday and every table in Azerbaijan has one ready for the celebration.

Happy Spring, friends! May it brings lots of happy moments to your lives and may it bring peace to earth!

Here’s a brief photo session I recently did with my daughter Meltem – she is dressed in traditional Azerbaijani dance costume and is holding a plate with Semeni.

Enjoy and Happy Novruz!

Happy New Year!

Dear friends of AZ Cookbook! Wanted to wish you all and your loved ones a Happy New Year! May the new year bring only joy, happiness, health, prosperity, success, luck, abundance, friendships, joy and many more to your lives! I hope the world will be a better place in 2013 – with peace on earth, more tolerance and understanding among people, and no hunger any place.

See in you in 2013!


PS: I have a nice photo to post here but have been experiencing some problems uploading images, hence the post a bit plain.
