Kurkut is another traditional dish with a unique taste. The long process of preparation consists of soaking the grains of wheat, specially crushed, then cooking them with pork, goose or turkey all night long. Kurkut is then prepared in a clay oven known as a tonir. It’s best served in the morning, surrounded by friends and family. Like Khash, Kurkut tastes better with a company. Even today, in Artsakh and the outlying villages, Kurkut is a staple of wedding eats served to the groomsmen; it staves the hunger of the wedding guests until the festive feast.
