About this Event

The Ottoman Empire was one of the largest and longest-lasting empires in history—and one of the most culinarily inclined. According to Prof. Robert Dankoff, the Ottomans saw their cuisine as reflecting the greatness of their empire. Not just the foods themselves but many related customs were an essential component in forging a shared Ottoman identity that bound people of different classes and backgrounds together. Culinary culture is a mirror of society, reflecting the way people lived, their attitudes and their relations with one another. In her talk Priscilla Mary Işın will look at various aspects of Ottoman cuisine, including its origins, influence and symbolic role in society.
