There is a honey bee clearly seen in the picture of "Tandir Kabob" of UZBIK CUISINE, Please change it!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:27, 19 January 2011 (UTC)


Are these descriptions "taste nice" and "good taste" translations of the name (in which case they should be labelled so and italicised) or are they opinions (in which case they should be deleted or generalised).



Is it possible to have more detailed descriptions of these dishes? There's a web link I added earlier, if someone has time, that could be reworked (ie not copied and pasted) to add information.



None of the terms "Taroviake", "Desipenov" or "Jahala chicken" seem to occur anywhere on or Google. Please can sources be specified? Tonywalton  | Talk 12:52, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

I tried to replace it with actual dishes I could confirm exist. However keep those names here so we can check their legitimacy later. If they are legit they can go back in. Also this should maybe be renamed "Uzbek cuisine" or "Cuisine in Uzbekistan" or some such. I think this was likely intended as a joke, but the topic sounds potentially valid.--T.

I've removed the prod and hoax tags - great rewrite! Yes, I think a move is a good idea, per Japanese cuisine, Indian cuisine, British cuisine and so on (which are targets of redirects from Cuisine of Japan, etc, so a redir from Cuisine of Uzbekistan appears sensible too).

It could likely still use improvement and expansion. My punctuation has been criticized in the past and I wasn't working on it this time. Also I mostly just wanted to make it genuine and have some content.--T. Anthony 14:53, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
Better than the extremely suspect oriiginal, at any rate! Page now moved to Uzbek cuisine and redir as above. Tonywalton  | Talk 20:58, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

Legends and Myths[edit]

I see potential in this article, but many stories regarding origins of types of foods sound like myths and are unverifiable. Could somebody please clean this article up (I know nothing about Uzbek cuisine)? Thanks. DubCrazy (talk) 03:54, 10 August 2008 (UTC)DubCrazy

names of many dishes are wrong. it is "Tok oshi" not Oshi Toki - this sounds Tajiki. Also, obi-non is not referred to bread in general. Bread is just called - non, or yopgan non, as opposed to Russian bukanka/bulka, which in colloquial speech is pronounced as bo'lka non. Obi-non is made of combination of yeast, water and flour. Since no oil or eggs are needed, its called obi-non (water-bread). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:31, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

additonal resource[edit] seems to be a good source of potential content, perhaps information from it can be incorporated within the scope of the article. Also, if anybody has pictures of flat bread, ""lepeshka"", that would be appreciated, because I currently am working on an article dealing with that food, and it is something that can help expand the scope of the Uzbek Cuisine article.

Muslim or secular?[edit]

"The use of alcohol is less widespread than in the west, but wine is comparatively popular for a Muslim nation as Uzbekistan is largely secular."

If it is "largely secular," why call it "Muslim"? GeneCallahan (talk) 03:30, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
