If you remember, I had a cooking class while we were in Turkey. This was more of a demonstration than a hands-on cooking class which in some ways was better as it allowed me to observe more closely how flavors were developed. This post is filled with action packed videos!
The meal consisted of 1 soup, 4 mezzes, one main and one dessert
He actually smiled lots during this
Let's make soup!
The filling for the stuffed eggplant
Making the mezzes which were a salad of broad beans, a salad of purslane and mint, a puree of fava beans and a hot liver mezze
The master sauce is garlic pounded with salt mixed with olive oil and lemon juice
It went on all the salads
The liver mezze
The bean salad
And the bean puree
And the purslane/mint salad
On to the eggplant dish
Dinner is served
