Azer News - - Country Guide - By La­man Is­may­ilova

Unique dishes of the an­cient and rich na­tional cui­sine have been in­cluded in the new edi­tion "The Leg­end about Azer­bai­jani cui­sine".

The Pres­i­dent of the Na­tional Cooking As­so­ci­a­tion, the head of the Na­tional Culi­nary Cen­ter, the Hon­ored Worker of Cul­ture of Azerbaijan, the Che­va­lier of the Shohrat Or­der Tahir Ami­raslanov pre­sented the book and held an au­to­graph ses­sion in Kharkiv, Trend Life re­ported.

The book was pre­sented in the frame­work of the solemn evening in honor of the 100th an­niver­sary of the Azerbaijan Demo­cratic Re­pub­lic, or­ga­nized by Kharkiv re­gional so­ci­ety of Azer­bai­jani-Ukrainian friend­ship "Dostlug".

The trans­la­tion of the book into Ukrainian was also car­ried out by the "Dostlug" so­ci­ety.

The main goal of the project is the preser­va­tion of the cen­turies-old na­tional and cul­tural tra­di­tions of the Azer­bai­jani peo­ple, the rap­proche­ment of two cul­tures Ukrainian and Azer­bai­jani, and the en­rich­ment of Ukrainian na­tional cui­sine.

Guests were also pre­sented a new book by Tahir Ami­raslanov "Kitchen of Love".

Chair­man of the Dostlug So­ci­ety, Mer­ited Sci­en­tist of Azerbaijan, Doc­tor of Tech­ni­cal Sciences, Pro­fes­sor Mu­rad Omarov, said that on May 28, 1918 the first par­lia­men­tary re­pub­lic was es­tab­lished in the Mus­lim East - Azerbaijan Demo­cratic Re­pub­lic (ADR).

ADR is the first sec­u­lar demo­cratic state in the Is­lamic world, as well as the first Mus­lim state where women re­ceived elec­toral rights. The mea­sures im­ple­mented in the field of state con­struc­tion, the cre­ation of the Na­tional Army of Azerbaijan, the an­nounce­ment of the Azer­bai­jani lan­guage as a state lan­guage, es­tab­lish­ment of the na­tional an­them, flag and coat of arms have opened a new glo­ri­ous page in the his­tory of Azerbaijan.

Un­for­tu­nately, on April 28, 1920 ADR for a num­ber of rea­sons ceased to ex­ist. In 1991, af­ter the restora­tion of its in­de­pen­dence, the Azer­bai­jani peo­ple, fol­low­ing the ADR ideals, cre­ated a new in­de­pen­dent state, de­vel­op­ing and suc­cess­ful in all spheres of life.

A spe­cial at­ten­tion was paid to the role of the Azer­bai­jani di­as­pora for strength­en­ing the im­age of the Re­pub­lic of Azerbaijan in the in­ter­na­tional arena. The re­ports on the his­tory of the cre­ation, devel­op­ment and his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance of ADR were made by sci­en­tists of the Kharkiv Na­tional Univer­sity named af­ter V.N. Karazin.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Kharkiv re­gional state ad­min­is­tra­tion and the Kharkiv city coun­cil, heads of higher ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions of Kharkiv, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the clergy of var­i­ous re­li­gious con­fes­sions, heads of na­tional-cul­tural as­so­ci­a­tions of Azer­bai­ja­nis of Kiev, Dnipro, Kharkiv, youth and stu­dents came to con­grat­u­late the Azer­bai­ja­nis.

In con­clu­sion, a ban­quet was held, fea­tur­ing na­tional dishes and drinks.
