I have some news. I didn’t think this would come any time soon, but, I found out I only have about 200 copies of my cookbook, Pomegranates and Saffron: A Culinary Journey to Azerbaijan, left. In the world! The news is as rewarding as it is a bit sad, as once the book is completely sold out, its future will be unknown – as of now, no plans to re-print it, unless circumstances change and I do so.

If you’d like a copy for yourself or your loved ones, THIS IS your chance! You can buy the book on the links below:

AZCOOKBOOK.com (ships worldwide; books here available until May 29th).

AMAZON.com (ships within US only).

I thank you for your support of my work from the bottom of my heart. This may not be the end, but the beginning of something more beautiful. I believe it. Book #2, perhaps?

Life happened in 2018, including many good things, such as my unique food and culture tours to the Caucasus, my birthplace. A crazy idea...
