*** SOLD OUT *** Cooking: Ezogelin (Ezo-the-bride) Çorbası (Soup) and Sigara Böreği (Cigarette Borek)

March 12, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


Susan, an experienced chef will demo how to make Turkish Ezogelin soup with cracked wheat and red lentils.  One additional popular dish, “Sigara Böreği” will be presented at this class as well. 

Ezogelin (Ezo-the-bride) Çorbası (Soup) is a hearty, mint-flavored soup made with red lentils, bulgur, pepper paste, and various Turkish spices. The origins of this classic Turkish winter dish are attributed to an unhappily married woman named Ezo who lived in the village of Dokuzyol near Gaziantep, Türkiye in the early 20th century.

Crispy Turkish cheese rolls, known as Sigara Böreği (Cigarette Borek), are made from thin phyllo dough and an herby cheese filling.
