How do you make Armenian Lavash?
Have you wondered, “How do you make Armenian Lavash?” Wonder no more! While in Yerevan, Armenia, University of Utah students visited Parvana Restaurant and were able to see the entire process. Lavash is so tasty- thanks Armenia!
So you think you can dance, Armenia?
On our final night together as a group, we went out to dine at Parvana Restaurant. Delicious food abounded, and just when we thought things could not get better, the music started. After weeks of work, we took a moment to reflect on 2014 and look forward to 2015.
