A taste of Kazakhstan
Beshbermak, a carb and protein attack,
made for hard living horsemen,
working hard out on the steppe.
Each family their own version,
handed down through generations,
lamb, horse even venison,
all made with love and affection.
The first true taste of Kazakhstan,
that wonderful country on the Silk Road,
which stands so tall and proud,
in the heart of Eurasia…
A story of Genghis and his Khan’s
The Khan of Khan’s out riding the steppe,
in fear for their lives his rivals wept.
Fierce and determined he mowed them down,
world domination the aim, his jewel and crown.
A fearsome empire stretched half the globe,
powered by the silk road if truth be told.
From central Asia he ruled the world,
outwardly his view point turned.
Onwards and upwards to greater things,
today if you are central Asian you must be related to him.
The Khan of Khan’s Genghis is his name,
millennia later his name still brings fame.
