TASOM Cooking Class


I attended a cooking class with TASOM (Turkish American Society of Missouri) and several other ladies from around the area. I was expecting to help make a Turkish dish. Instead, there was a lady nicknamed “the chef”, who prepared an entire Iftar dinner while we watched. She was amazing. She had already prepped the ingredients, then showed us step by step how to assemble them. This is the same recipe, baked chicken and potatoes, that participants in the 3-part Faith Intertwine chose to make for the Iftar dinner the Saturday night of the great hail downpour. While this huge chicken and potato mixture was baking, the chef made bulgar pilaf, tomato soup, and Greek salad. We watched with awe. A lady, who also is a certified interpreter, translated everything to us from the chef. Breads and deserts were prepared ahead of time, both handmade and purchased, to decrease the time to show this elaborate feast. Then we all were served in first class style, seated with at least 1 Turkish lady at each table. All the food was delicious. I have those recipes if anyone wants them. The next cooking class is April 30, from 2:00 to 4:00, earlier and with a shorter time than the last class. Let me know if you want to get on the list. ~Evelyn Buretta
