TIP: Lahvosh is a thin, leavened crisp bread found in sizes ranging from 6 to 16 inches in diameter. It is also called Armenian cracker bread. In its crisp state, it can be used for dipping or with spreads. The softened form of lahvosh can be used to make large wraps or appetizers. To soften the crisp lahvosh, hold the bread under cold running water, making sure both sides are wet. Wrap in two damp towels for 1 hour or so until it becomes pliable. It can then be spread with fillings, rolled up and eaten as a wrap or sliced for pinwheel appetizers
