I once created a cooking class, called 'Zen in the Kitchen'. Then wrote a book called the same. Then started the group with that name and the blog came after. All this happened in Turkish. Now is the time for the English version of it. Let's see what will cook here!

A cheesemaker from Kars
I took this photo last year, at one of the villages of Kars, an eastern city of Turkey. This woman and other women in her family (an in the village) make this string cheese, called 'çeçil'. They are the ones who makes the cheese but men take them to sell.
This is a fried bread (kind of a phyllo dough) I tasted at a small bakery called Tandoory Bread at Borough Park, New York. It was owned by Bukharan Jews. The bread (sprinkled with powdered sugar) was very interesting. I tried to get information on it but couldn't get much. She said it's made in Uzbekhistan all the time, daily and on holidays such as Navruz. I wonder if this bread is made in other countries as well or not and I'd love to know a little more about it.
