During lockdown, Theatre and Comedy Director Ed Stambollouian had time to expand his amazing repertoire of delicious recipes, as seen on his Instagram account, @londoncooking. In particular, he took the time to explore his Armenian heritage through food: attempting his first basturma, sweet soujuk, lahmajun, lavash and eech. It also gave him time to develop his very own family dolma recipe (vineleaf dolma or sarma).
Ed presents this workshop as a chance to share and talk about the different dolma or
sarma recipes that Armenians and non-Armenians enjoy. From 4:00 Ed will lead all
participants through the steps from preparing the filling, to rolling and cooking the
dolma. We take a break while the dolma cooks and then join together to compare
our results – by Zoom – and eating together.
Note: Ed’s recipe will appear on the AI website a week before the event so all can
prepare, gathering their ingredients ahead of time.
