Armenians Helped Too

March 12, 1997

The real "hidden chefs of Turkey" are the Armenians! Nine other ethnic groups were listed as contributors to the flavors of Gaziantep ("The Hidden Chefs of Turkey," Feb. 12). At the turn of the century, Armenians made up almost 50% of the population of Aintab (as Gaziantep was then known). I am certain they also made a contribution.

The Turks refuse to acknowledge that Armenians were their predecessors in Asia Minor. The Times must not help perpetuate this myth.
