YEREVAN—The participants of this year’s Dolma Festival, to be held near Armenia’s Sardarapat Memorial Complex on Wednesday, have been tasked to prepare the longest dolma ever made. Concordantly, representatives from the Guinness Book of World Records have been invited to the event, to register the world record.
“The key objective of the event is to promulgate traditional Armenian dishes and to develop and strengthen Armenian cuisine. The festival has another important objective, too: to confirm the Armenian origins of dolma,” noted Chairman Sedrak Mamulyan of the non-governmental organization Development and Preservation of Armenian Culinary Traditions.
“The Dolma Festival coincides with the Golden Apricot’ [International] Film Festival. It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce Armenia’s national cuisine to guests from a variety of countries,” Film Festival event organizer Vardan Hakobyan added.
Representatives from the organization Youth informed that the duration of the Dolma Festival will be extended next year and cooks from Artsakh will join their colleagues in Armenia.
