At this cooking class, we learned to prepare three fun dishes: avci boregi, yogurtlu tavuk salatasi and kremali elma soleni. Avci boregi is a delicious pastry that is prepared with bulgur and ground beef. We really enjoyed the yogurtlu tavul salatasi; it is chicken salad served with yogurt and vegetables. Our teacher gave us some secrets during the class to make this salad more appealing and delicious. Our dessert was the kremali elma soleni. It is an apple dessert prepared with tea biscuits, walnuts and creamy vanilla pudding.
Next class menu is dalyan koftesi (meatloaf roll), muceddere pilavi (pilaf with green lentils) and cikollatali sofra kremasi (creamy chocolote pudding) on 3/15. Sign up is simple: RSVP to email@example.com
