About this event
Whats on the Menu:
- Manti (Turkish dumplings with minced/ground meat filling)
- Vegetarian Manti with sautéed onions, chickpeas and spices
Turks have been enjoying manti, glorious spiced dumplings, since they were nomadic tribes in Central Asia. Turks brought manti brought with them when they travelled towards Anatolia, today’s Turkey, during the 13th century. One of the most popular dishes in today’s Turkey, it’s a special ritual for family members to gather to prepare the dough and stuff the tiny manti squares with the filling together. The marriage of the melt-in-the-mouth dumplings with garlic yoghurt sauce and spice-infused olive oil is simply irresistible. Join Özlem Warren, a Friend of Milk Street and the author of her Gourmand Award-winning book “Özlem’s Turkish Table,” to learn how to make manti two different ways. Özlem will show you the traditional manti with ground meat filling, as well as a vegetarian version with mashed chickpeas and caramelized onion filling. Served over garlicky yogurt and drizzled with pepper and spice-infused olive oil, manti is a feast to all senses. As always, Özlem will also share her ahead-of-time prep and freezing tips, along with stories from her homeland.
