Making Lavash - Armenian Flatbread

Lavash is a traditional thin Armenian flatbread made in a tandoor. It is rolled out flat and slapped on to the sides of the clay oven. Women all over Armenia in villages make this bread and it is a huge part of their food culture. It is eaten with almost everything in Armenia, but it is best when hot out of the oven and wrapped with fresh herbs and cheese. I wanted to create an illustration depicting the process of making this bread as it was something I saw while in Armenia the first time years ago.
