Politiki kouzina

-But you added nettles!
-No, it was "kisa mamout."

That's what our mother gave us
to clear up our acne!

Then why did she tell me
to add it to the dolmades?

What I longed for most was an
engagement in the community.

Prerequisite for
a wedding to occur...

was the prospective bride's "initiation"
to the cuisine of Constantinople.

Don't be afraid.
It's already dead!

But it will be tasty. They'll
be licking their fingers.

-Firstly, we add the spices.
-Always "hide" garlic and onion.

Emilios says that women in
Morrocco "hide" garlic in meat.

Aunt, keep quiet!
Oregano is all it needs and
if you add a touch of nutmeg...

We'll have
a feast on Sunday!

Come in, Osman Bey.
How are you?

Very well. And how are
you, Mr. Vasilis?

Very well. You look
handsome today, Mustafa.

When will you drop by
and play with Fanis?

After the circumcision cere-
mony, I'll bring him over.

What do you want to be
when you grow up?

-A doctor...
-An army officer.

Both are fine but I reckon
Mustafa will be an army doctor.

-What can I give you?
