To celebrate the successful staging of our short play, STUCK (written by Kamlesh Acharya, and for which he and I were nominated in Backstage Awards categories for best short play writer and best short play director, respectively), I held a cast party at my place. True to form, I turned it into a culinary exploration opportunity, selecting Turkish as the theme of the night.
The entree course was Dolma, a hearty dish of tomato stuffed with a cooked mixture of rice and tomato pulp.
For the main, I made lamb kofta and served it on a bed of fattoush.
And for dessert, I baked Sekerpare, a semolina-and-flour cookie with syrup.
