Culinary traditions of the Transylvanian Armenians – Christmas and the New Year. Armenians arrived to Transylvania in two waves: one during the 1600s and the second at the beginning of the 20th century. Some of the foods described are for the advent fasting period, others are for the holidays themselves. Mentioned are: maslin (a fruit dish), pilaf (a rice dish), tahin (a crepe), dolmat (stuffed cabbage or grape leaves), sulig, mahok, stuffed fish, anusabur (a sweet soup), pachlava, a sweet made with rose petals and halva.
