What do you eat for Thanksgiving in Crimea?
You can find a recipe for lamb-filled manti, steamed with no egg in the dough, on the food blog, Anna's Recipe Box. Anna describes Uzbek food as the food she grew up with and includes recipes for other Uzbek foods as well. Sopressata, another food blog, also has a recipe for Uzbek dumplings, with an egg in the dough and fried. But she also describes how to make a pumpkin filling for you to try.
Across time and across space, we make recipes our own and family food traditions continually evolve. The museum person in me, who thinks about artifacts, sees so much, so many stories embedded in that simple steamer, brought home to Crimea by Lenura's mother-in-law. Thanks again Barb, for sharing!
