I think my favorite Kyrgyz food is oromo. So when Isabel's Kyrgyz teacher volunteered to demonstrate how to make it while our guests were here, I jumped at the chance. Oromo is taaastey.
Thankfully, oromo-making doesn't require bunches of bowls. Just one--plus a table and a large cloth.
Oromo lessons were strictly relationship oriented. One Kyrgyz culture lover sharing her passion with eager learners.
I apologize for the blurry quality of the next photo. I could say it was an action shot (which it was) but even the fridge is fuzzy.
"Why????" It was so risky.
"It was upside down."
We set up a quick picnic in the backyard because--shade--and called everyone to the table.
It was eye-rollingly delectable. Offset by polka dot paper plates.
