Osh Bread-Making Course

Make and Break Your Own “LepyOSHka”!

In Osh and throughout Kyrgyzstan, bread not only varies by its shape, but also by its taste, and the unique way in which it is baked. In this tour, we offer you the opportunity to enjoy baking bread in a local community and to learn the stories behind the bread. Get hands on with a local baker to learn how lepyoshka is made, including preparing the dough, shaping and decorating the circular loaves, and placing them in the tandyr (oven). Once your bread comes pipping hot from the oven, you'll have a chance to try it in a local style, with kaimak (traditional sour cream).

Make and break bread in Osh, and get a glimpse behind the tradition!
