Notes

My husband Harry is Armenian, and the cuisine of their heritage is delicious, full of flavor, and includes unique pairing of ingredients. I've taken Harry's delicious rice pilaf recipe, and added his Aunt Rose's blend of nuts and dried fruit to this for a delightfully nutty, amazing, delicious side dish. You can delete the nuts/cranberries if you like, but I think it adds a very special and festive touch!

A dash of local for every season
