From the big, open spaces of the Qizilqum desert in the west, to mountains and fertile valleys in the east, Uzbek cooking is hearty fare, especially suited to meat lovers. Bitter winters are warmed by simmering soups and stews, while exquisite pilaf dishes accompany outdoor dining on hot summer nights.
