I have a lot of recipes from dh's mama and I'm not always sure if it's the Turkish influence or authentic Armenian.
My family emmigrated to Boston, where I was born.
Given all the upheaval and movement of families during that time, it would be impossible to say a recipe is purely Armenian or Armenian with a Turkish influence.
I always have to remind myself that foods and recipes do not respect poltical borders but blend over miles and miles.
