Karl’s Ezo Gelin Soup II

Jan has a friend who is getting oral surgery and will have a week where she will not be able to chew. My brother-in-law and his family are also coming to the Bay Area and they all have troubles with their teeth. Soft soups are the order of the day and I decided to make three soups that I have made before: Ezo Gelin, Maafe, and Avgolemono. Half I will give to Jan’s friend as a mitzvah and we will have a soup tasting for the family with the rest.

Those conversations always start, “Driving along listening to NPR….”

Karl’s Kisir (Turkish Tabouleh)

I have been making Lebanese tabouleh for years. However, today I am making Turkish grilled fish and I got to thinking; Do Turks make this classic salad differently? The answer is yes.
