Breakfast :: Blanket Drive Breakfast

Triangle : 05-23-2015

As you know Divan Center organized a blanket drive last November to help the Syrian refugees in Turkey. More than 500 blankets were collected during this drive. The blankets were shipped to Turkey and distributed to those in need late last year in time for the winter months. We would like to thank everyone for their support and contribution.

We organized Turkish style breakfast on May 23 @10:00am at Divan Center in Cary to provide more information about this blanket drive and to share about the situation of the refugees in Turkey.

Cooking Class :: A unique desert with special ingredient - black pepper

Triangle : 05-16-2015

By using a stand mixer bulgur, herbs and spices were crushed into a favorite Turkish snack and a specialty of southeastern Turkey, ciğ kofte (Turkish pronunciation: [ˌtʃiː cofte]). Isot, a very dark, almost blackish paprika, prepared in a special manner used in ciğ kofte was very interesting to everybody.

We made a dessert called 'Laz boreği' (LAHZ' buer-EY'-ee), a recipe from Eastern Black Sea Region of Turkey It is like a baklava filled with delightfully tasty vanilla pudding instead of nuts and it is unique because of an unusual ingredient for a desert-black pepper.Waiting for it to be done was not very easy because of great smell coming from the oven during baking.
