workshop: turning traditional Turkish dolmas


February 12 from 17.00:19.30 PM - XNUMX:XNUMX PM

Did you know that dolma is an age-old, traditional Turkish dish? Variants of this already existed in seventeenth-century Persia. The Turkish word dolma means stuffed and refers to a stuffed vegetable. The most traditional variant is a grape leaf filled with a mixture of rice and meat, but you can also make them without meat to your own taste.

Turkish culture includes elaborate, festive weddings with many different dishes. Dolmas are indispensable here and are prepared by the female members of the family using a special technique. In our workshop the story behind this Turkish wedding tradition is told and you will learn to make this special dish yourself.

The workshop is part of the exhibition Turkish women pioneers which tells the underexposed story of Turkish female migrant workers Haarlem and their daughters and granddaughters. Feride Koycu, one of the pioneers from the exhibition, will present this evening together with a number of Turkish women. Not only do they teach you the art of making dolma, they also prepare a delicious Turkish meal for you.
