Today, finally I took the Manti Cooking Class from Newly Opened Restaurant “Organic Cave Kitchen”, Goreme. 4 local women cook traditional time consuming cookings with firewood oven. ‪#‎searchingforperfectmanti‬ IMG_9940 Yes, Manti! Yufka is handmaid, fermented butter, meat, Yoghurt, every ingredients are nice. ‪#‎searchingforperfectmanti‬ IMG_0012 I interviewed with Mustafa Kantar the owner of “Organic Cave Kitchen” from Goreme. My article about him will be in 2 months. IMG_0016 After cooking class, we will go to The Dalton Brothers Horse Ranch that was featured on the film “Winter Sleep”. Cowboy Ekrem lives in Goreme stone house with traditional cowboy living style.   IMG_0034 Esma Şahin Murat from BaBa ZuLa’s wife came to see me from Ankara, she always helps me lot.

At Dalton Brothers, Ekrem’s friends come and spend some time and relax. I wish I come again in winter time like “Winter Sleep” film.

This time I ate 4 times Cicek Dolmasi, Stuffed Zucchini Flower.
The flowers bloom only 3 weeks in a year, and once petals are opened, it’s useless, you can’t make it! So, all village women go and pick them up early in the morning, and stuff half cooked rice & herbs. Then you can keep them in the freezer.
4 times ate, some are unique, some are so so.
The one from “Organic Cave Kitchen” was simple, but, so tasty. Pollen from the flower gives strong creamy rich texture that I’ve never known! I want to eat them one more time!
