Cooking Class :: Wedding Rice and more!

Triangle : 02-06-2016

Wedding Rice and more!

We prepared Drape Pilaf (Perde Pilavi), Pinto beans in Olive Oil (Barbunya Pilaki), and Meringue Cake. We started with the dessert first. Meringue cake is very easy to make and with the meringue layer, it is rich in taste. We bake it in a large tray, and then cut it into half. We put whipped cream in between two layers.

Our second dish was the vegetarian pinto or cranberry beans. Our cook soaked the beans overnight. The beans are cooked with onion, garlic, tomato paste, and tomatoes in olive oil. It is served in room temperature garnished with parsley and lemon wedges. The drape pilaf from south eastern region is served mostly in weddings. It contains chicken, pine nuts, currants enveloped in a thin layer of dough, topped with almonds. The pilaf has a shape similar to a cake and is then served in slices.
