#SilkRoadGastronomy: Tavë kosi (soured milk casserole) is Albanian national dish. It is a dish of lamb (occasionally chicken, then called tavë kosi me mish pule) and rice baked with a mixture of yogurt and eggs. It is also popular in Greece and Turkey, where it is known as Elbasan tava (Albanian: Tavë Elbasani or Tava e Elbasanit), named after the Albanian city of Elbasan. #silkroadtourism #visitsilkroad #travelenjoyrespect #IY2017 @albania.tourism

#Shimiin_arkhi or ‘milk vodka’ is #Mongolia’s traditional alcoholic #beverage which is distilled from fermented yoghurt. It's made by heating the yoghurt then using an open vat on top of a large cooking pot and over heat with a second pot acting as a lid but holding cold water. When heated, this will create condensation which will drip down to the collecting bowl in the center. This distillation process produces the milk vodka and the alcohol content can be from 10 up to 20 percent. #silkroadgastronomy #silkroadtourism #visitsilkroad #IY2017 #travelenjoyrespect @unwto

Georgia has been known as a country of grapes and wine since ancient times. The history of making #wine in traditional #qvevri vessels has existed thousands of years and is still being practiced today. The qvervi wine is unique for its rich chemical composition, its distinctive bouquet and taste and for its nutritional and curative qualities. Wine has a crucial place in social interactions in Georgia, playing a role in the traditional hospitality of the country and facilitating friendship and good will. #silkroadgastronomy #silkroadtourism #visitsilkroad #IY2017 #travelenjoyrespect @unwto @georgiatravel

Rakı is an unsweetened, occasionally, depending on area of production, anise-flavored alcoholic drink that is popular in Greece, Albania, Turkey and Iran and in the Balkan countries. It is similar to several other alcoholic beverages available around the Mediterranean and the Middle East, e.g. pastis, ouzo, sambuca, arak, Aragh Sagi and aguardiente. In Turkey and Greece, it is considered a national drink. Rakı is traditionally produced by twice distilling grape pomace in traditional copper alembic (beaker), and flavoring it with aniseed. Standard rakı is a grape product, though it may be produced from figs (Ficus) as well. #silkroadgastronomy #silkroadtourism #visitsilkroad #IY2017 #travelenjoyrespect @unwto
