Beer, Food, Eurovision
News has been rattling off around Azerbaijan at a quickening pace. A couple things that have caught my eye:
- Czech beer is coming to Azerbaijan. Hold your horses, folks. We already have good beer in Azerbaijan. Right? It’s so good, they’re even exporting it. In all seriousness, though, this is a positive development. If there is going to be beer in this country, it might as well be good. While beer isn’t really an important part of my life here, it’s still significant that the Czech Republic is throwing down:
The brewery’s capacity will be 1.5 million liters per year. Czech technologies, recipes and raw materials will be used to produce high-quality pilsner-type beer. The Czech company Pali Chotebor will supply the beer-bottling equipment.
- An Azerbaijani restaurant is opening in Paris. I hope they do well. Azerbaijan has some real treats here, and I think it’d be great for some of the great recipes to make it abroad. Success in Paris would be a harbinger of things to come, indeed. And if they need a good recipe and tutorial for dolma, I know of a team that could help out.
- Safura continues to lose. Despite the headline attempting to pull a 1984 on you, Safura really did continue to not win Eurovision. We already know she didn’t win the contest. But I was not aware of the Miss Eurovision 2010 part of it. Turns out she couldn’t win that one either, though. Drip drops again…
