On the 28th of September, a week before the end of my project, I cooked a national dish in the kindergarten where I’d been volunteering for 6 months.
This dish is called Dolma and it’s cooked in many countries of Balkans, the Caucasus, Central Asia and Middle East. The type of Dolma that i cooked is called Three Sisters and is mainly made during the summer since there should be fresh vegetables. Many of my colleagues joined me in the kitchen helping, watching and asking questions about this dish. They were very surprised to see how long it takes to cook it. We started at 9:00 and the meal was ready at 13:30! Thankfully, it was worth it and all my colleagues enjoyed this meal. I’m very thankful for the support and help that i got from them.
Here are some pictures of the prosess:
