Sedrak Mamulyan, Chairman of the Development and Preservation of Armenian Cookery NGO, announced a surprise – the longest dolma will be shown at the festival.
“About 60 varieties of dolma were shown at last year’s festival. This year we are going to show the longest dolma. We even have an intention to get a record registered by the Guinness Book,” Mamulyan said.
The following nomination will feature the festival: the best taste, the best idea, the best amateur-cook, and spectators’ sympathies.
Cooks from Lori, Tavush, Gegharkuni and Armavir will take part in the festival. The funds to be raised will be provided to an Armavir school.
The organizers decided to make the festival overlap with the Golden Apricot film festival.
Vardan Hakobyan, a representative of the Golden Apricot festival, said that the aim is to place emphasis on such events.
