Cooking Around the World: I Gotta Have My Gata!

Week five of my journey around the world in a flavor-powered balloon brought us to Armenia, where we sampled both a main dish and a dessert: lula kebabs (ground meat mixed with onion and spices, cooked on a skewer) and gata (a flaky pastry akin to a croissant with sugar between its layers).

The kebabs were not too different from long meatballs or sausages made from ground beef. My kids were surprisingly receptive to them; this is a surprise because they are never receptive to new food. I think it helped that they were on long metal spikes.

The gata is perhaps my favorite new dish so far. Sweet but not too sweet, so I can still eat way too many at once without feeling sick.
