About this Event

Turkish cuisine is healthy, delicious and, with a little bit of confidence, so easy to make. Join guest chef Özlem Warren, author of the cookbook “Özlem’s Turkish Table,” as she takes you on a culinary journey to Turkey and shows you how to make two delicious mezes: the ever-popular traybake filo pastry with spinach and feta (Ispanakli, Peynirli Borek) and a spicy bulgur wheat salad with pomegranate molasses (Kisir), both from Özlem’s homeland of ancient Antioch in Antakya, Turkey. Mezes are delightful appetizers that play an important role in Turkish cuisine and are perfect to share with family and friends. During the class, Özlem will also offer ideas for substitutions, tips for cooking and freezing ahead of time, and stories from her home. Join Özlem for a meze feast!
