H.E. Dilyor Khakimov, Ambassador of The Embassy of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Brussels, also accredited to the Netherlands, organized an Uzbekistan cooking workshop and demonstration to offer diplomats and others an opportunity to explore classic Uzbek cuisine.

The demonstration was held on the lawns of the Embassy in Brussels on July 17th 2020. This amazingly gorgeous garden proved to be a perfect backdrop for the demonstration.

The event featured the Embassy’s Chef Mr. Nigmat Rakhmov who prepared the world famous Uzbekistan Plov/Pilav. However, interestingly it should be noted that the authentic name of the dish is Osh.

You will find different versions of Plov/Pilav/Pilaf in other countries such as Iran, India, Turkey, and Central-Asia. The dish can even be found in the Caribbean region as well, for instance in the islands of Martinique and Grenada. It is often debated that Trinidad &Tobago has the best Plov or “Pelau” in the Caribbean. Even though versions of this dish can be found in many parts of the world, the precise country of origin of Plov is not known.
