Hands On from Istanbul

image Tijen writes:  “I took this photo in August 2006, in a village called Zavotlar, near the Armenian border of Turkey.

“I love watching old women, making bread or doing any work in the kitchen, related to food. We have a lot to learn from them. I especially liked this lady. She was so peaceful, quiet and friendly. It was a wonderful day, spent with three generations of women baking bread and having freshly baked pastries with “kasar peyniri” a cheese made by the same family, along with freshly brewed turkish tea.”

- Tijen Inaltong, Istanbul, Turkey
