Cooking Class :: Eid dish

Triangle : 09-26-2015

This week's cooking class was special for Eid. We started with fresh green beans in extra virgin olive oil. Adding tomatoes, onion, garlic and pepper, it turned out to be a very delicious vegetarian dish to serve in room temperature. We then cooked a traditional Eid dish, Lamb stew, and kavurma, which is an authentic Ottoman cuisine dish. We added lemon juice, onion and some oregano to lamb. We used slow cooking in order to avoid adding liquid. It was done in 90 minutes.

Voluntary :: Helping Hand to Refugee Families

Triad : 09-26-2015

Turkish-American community of Divan Center recently celebrated Eid Al-Adha (feast of sacrifice). The Eid Al-Adha is an important four-day religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to honor Abraham's obedience to God. Muslims commemorate Abraham's ultimate act of sacrifice every year during Eid Al-Adha by themselves sacrificing an animal such as a sheep, cow, or goat. The Eid Al-Adha is a time of reflection, sacrifice, charity, and family. The meat from the sacrifice of Eid al-Adha is mostly shared with friends, family, and the community at large.
