BREAD! Hot, steaming, and squishy! With a heavenly scent that beckons all the family members into the kitchen. Each of them begging for the first slice. Smeared with butter, or topped with sharp cheddar cheese, I’m just too weak to resist! In fact, if I could choose one food to eat for the rest of my life, can you guess what it would be?
Assyrians eat A LOT of bread! In fact, it’s usually served with every meal, yes, even with rice! Pita pockets are quite popular, along with samoon. Although all bread is referred to as “samoon” in Assyrian, it also describes a specific type. It has a distinct shape, similar to a flat-football. Sometimes it’s used to make sandwiches, and other times torn in chunks to dip into stews.
