For Emine Saglam, being with family for dinner during Ramadan is what it’s all about. She likes to experiment with new recipes with her three daughters as they break fast during iftar. Tonight, she’ll be making misket meatballs (minced beef and lamb), sarma (stuffed vine leaves), dolma (stuffed peppers), artichoke, and cowpea salad. Her mom taught her everything she knows about cooking, and Emine hopes to do the same with her young girls. Join us at the table as we share a meal with Emine and her family in Istanbul, Turkey.
Ramadan, or Ramzan, is annually observed by Muslims around the world as a holy month of fasting, prayer and community. During this time, those observing will fast from dawn to sunset, refraining from eating or drinking as a means of purifying the body, mind and heart.
After sunset, many will gather to break their fast with family and friends, sharing a meal known as an iftar. Around the world, the languages and the foods might change, but the spirit of love and togetherness is all the same.
