Ceremonial Keskek Tradition


Language: Turkish

Keskek is a traditional Turkish ceremonial wheat and meat dish prepared for wedding ceremonies, circumcisions and religious holidays. Women and men work together to prepare the dish in huge cauldrons, then serve it to the guests. Many community members participate in the various chores from selecting the wheat to saying blessings and prayers to carrying the wheat and to cooking it. The celebrations also include entertainment such as plays and musical performances. The cooking tradition is safeguarded and transmitted by master cooks to apprentices.
