CULTURAL TOUR
TCF-Culinary Arts Center presents with Asuman Albayrak
A Journey into the Cuisine of Çorum

October 28-30, 2016
Çorum, is known to be home to one of Anatolia’s oldest civilizations; the Hittites. It also has a culinary culture as deep as the history of Hittites with its local ingredients, products and some of the most refined cuisine in all of Turkey. We will be exploring the culinary culture in all aspects from the most well-known product the “leblebi” (roasted chickpeas – a popular snack among Turks), to a lesser known product , the delicate “baklava.” Our food expert Mrs. Asuman Albayrak, who is one of the contributing authors of various books on the cuisine of Çorum and Hittites, will be our host. She will be guiding us through Çorum while showing us all facets of the local cuisine. Come with us on this journey and lets explore this wonderful cuisine together...
