Join us as we travel back to the 16th Century when one of the greatest rulers in history, Suleyman the Magnificent ruled the Ottoman empire from the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. Our “culinary tour leader” Channon Mondoux will regale us with the observations of visitors from that period and reveal the palace’s ancient recipes and kitchen setup. Ms. Mondoux will also narrate how an elaborate palace dinner was presented.

********************

A native of Canada, Ms. Mondoux has studied historical cuisine and produced lavish historical banquets across Canada and the U.S. She is the founder of Renaissance Cuisine, a personal chef service, and has published many free-lance food articles. Her latest work, ”Celebration at the Sarayi,” is an e-cookbook featuring recipes from 16th century Istanbul. CDs can be purchased at our meeting, or online from her website (http://www.rencuisine.com).

Cost of the lecture program is $5, $3 for students and members, and no charge for CHC members.

Thanks. I had hoped to come, but someone switched a meeting on me, so I had to be elsewhere. Glad I don't have to miss this completely.

HI,

All you miss is the opportunity to ask a question or sample the food! Otherwise it is pretty much the same experience as being there.

I love how this technology preserves the content instead of disappearing into thin air.
