National Cuisines of Kyrgyzstan

Welcome to our website "National Cuisines of Kyrgyzstan".

This is one of a series of websites which is planned to cover the many different aspects of Kyrgyzstan: the people and their traditional lifestyle and culture; the places and the history of the country; and (especially as we are a tour company) about the tourism potential of the country and the region.
The reason we are creating these sites is that we find many people know little about this small country in the heart of the Asian continent, and which straddles the ancient Silk Road. As a result they have many questions.

We hope that the websites will answer some of these questions and also introduce the country to a wider audience. We hope that you find the site interesting and helpful. We welcome your comments and suggestions as to how we can make it more so.

This particular site concentrates on the variety of different styles of cuisine that can be found in Kyrgyzstan.  The country has a long history of assimilating peoples, such as travellers along the Great Silk Road; and settlers who were either attracted to this the remote corner of the Russian Empire or, perhaps, exiled here during the period of the Soviet Union.  Each of these nationalities brought with them, and still maintains, their own traditional cultures and cuisines which together create a kaleidoscope of tastes available to explore.
