Gifts of the Caspian Sea for lunch

After a walk around the bazaar, a trip to the vicinity of Baku awaits you. It is here that for hundreds of years hardworking farmers have been cultivating the very cucumbers, tomatoes, figs and grapes that then go to the shelves.

The main trump cards of this place are fish skewers with spices and dishes in pomegranate and cornel sauce with barberry and tomatoes from the gifts of the Caspian Sea - the best Caspian fish (bersh, omul, sturgeon, beluga, and mullet). The chef says he uses dozens of spices in the marinade and keeps this unique formula a closely guarded secret.

Dinner: lamb and real Azerbaijani pilaf
