Ideas for an Azerbaijan Football Party
Azerbaijan have never qualified for a major football tournament. Mind you, they have only been competing as an independent nation since their gaining independence from the Soviet Union in 1991. Since then they have taken part in the qualification for every World Cup and European championship, but on each occasion failed to qualify.
Azerbaijani Party Decorations
Food for an Azerbaijani PartyA classic Azerbaijani dinner party typically lasts for several hours and always begins with tea. After tea, salads and snacks are served, followed by soup, which often contains meat, fish, or chicken. The main course is served next and is also prepared with meat, poultry, and fish. There are many fish native to the Caspian Sea, so Azerbaijan has a wide range of fish dishes, including fish Kebabs, fish soups, baked, fried, boiled and stewed fish, and Pilaf with fish.
Pilaf - or Plov - is regarded by many as Azerbaijan's national dish, and sometimes referred to as "the king of all dishes". It is always served at the center of the table at a dinner party or celebration meal. Typically, if the previous course was fish, the pilaf would contain meat, or vice versa.
The main meat in Azerbaijani cuisine is lamb, but veal and chicken are used as well. Kebabs - usually consisting of lamb cooked on skewers over a barbecue - are also extremely popular. Kebabs made with chicken, fish, game, and vegetables are very common in Azerbaijan as well. Narsharab, a sweet and sour sauce made from pomegranate, is often served with kebabs.
At the end of the meal, tea is served again with the nationís famous sweet pastries such as Pakhlava.

Drink for an Azerbaijani PartyWithout a doubt Black Tea is Azerbaijan's favourite drink, consumed on almost any and every occasion, often in unique pear-shaped glasses called Armudu. It's usually brewed quite strong, without milk, and wild herbs such as thyme, mint or sage are often added to the tea.
Another Azerbaijani favourite are sherbets, made from fruit juices, water and sugar, and sometimes perfumed with rose water. Lemon, strawberry, apricot, pomegranate, plum and cherry are common flavours, but often more than one fruit jusice is used to create a sort of fruit juice cocktail.
We have not been able to find a reliable source of Azerbaijani football shirts at this time. For reference, they currently play in either all red or all blue - there is some debate as to which is their home and which their away kit, and they have a history of changing their kit colours on a very regular basis!
