Pinar will introduce you to one of the most popular cold-weather foods from the Black Sea region of Turkey — Peynirli Karadeniz Pidesi. Cousin to the famous Georgian Khachapuri, this filled flatbread is made from yeasted dough, gently hand-rolled to create a boat shape, and adorned with a savory cheese and egg filling. You'll learn to form, fill and bake the dough, then prepare Mercimek Çorbası (Red Lentil Soup) and Taze Ot Salatası (Fresh Herb Salad) to accompany your pidesi.
Vegetarian with dairy, eggs and gluten.
About the instructor: Pinar was born in Diyarbakir in the south eastern region of Turkey. She lived in Istanbul for 17 years before following the love of her life all the way to Seattle. A former language teacher, she established a new teaching career in the U.S. in cooking which helped to ease her longing for her home country. She has cooked in Turkish restaurants, held pop-up cooking events, and taught cooking classes in and around Seattle. Pinar blends her Kurdish heritage with other ethnic traditions found in her Anatolian homeland. She loves to share her passion for food which originated in her mother’s kitchen and her father’s produce store.
