The Association of Gastronomical Tourism of Uzbekistan has launched an electronic dictionary of Uzbek culinary terminology.
The dictionary has been developed in Uzbek, Russian and English languages. The E-Dictionary includes the names of the local dishes, gastronomical terminology, as well as the preparation process of local food and steps of making the dishes in details.
The current electronic dictionary is designed perfectly not only for the chefs working in restaurants, cafes and hotels of Uzbekistan but as well for foreign tourists visiting the country.
The thesaurus provides not only the names of traditional dishes of the delicious Uzbek cuisine, but also detailed information and guidance on the preparation of the dishes, as well as the ingredients list.
The E-Dictionary has been registered in the Agency of Intellectual property. Currently, the application is available for the users of the Play market on a free download basis.
If you decide to take a trip to Uzbekistan for the sake of tasting its national cuisine only – trust us, it is still worth the case. If you ask why, we would not suggest you going through the delighted reviews of users on TripAdvisor, but rather to taste it on your own with our Uzbek Cuisine Tour by our travel company, which offers you to combine visiting Tashkent and old cities, as well as discovering delicious food each region has to offer, which is unlike any other taste in the world you have experienced before.
Even the basic bread, baked in hundreds of ways based on different ingredients, flour and styles, is unique for each region and impossible to be found in any other part of the world – we promise you this. While taking this deliciously adventurous tour, we offer you not only to taste the legendary Uzbek traditional rice - Palov (Pilav/ Osh), which has been added to the intangible heritage list of UNESCO in 2016, but also to flavour many other dishes like Lagman, Samsa, Shashlik / Kebab, Hanum, Manti and Shurpa.
You will be able not only to delight in their taste by yourselves, but also to master the skills of preparing the ones you choose, learning the mixture of secret ingredients that make the food so incomparable and unique.
No matter how modern nowadays bazaars can seem they still keep the old traditional spirit that takes you centuries back, where you will be lost in the flavours of spices and colourful local fruits from Dehkans (farmers). Of course, we will not let you go without mastering baking classes of Uzbek bread, since you will definitely miss its unforgettable savour after you leave the country.
