A Memento

When Baris Manco released his first vinyl in France, it was also brought to Turkey. While it was playing on Istanbul Radio, he is announced as "Baris Manco, young talent from France". His mother, upon hearing this immediately leaves her home and takes a cab to Istanbul Radio and she says "He is my son and he is Turkish" to the authorities.


While we prepare our dry flower okra for cooking, we place them on a clean kitchen cloth and properly rub themk. After this is completed, you will see that your okras are clean and unwanted strings and pieces are eliminated. Later, we cook our okras in a boiling water with lemon juice. After we drain them, we remove their strings and make them ready for the meal. Since fresh okras aren't available as of now, if you want to eat okras, you can prepare dried okras in this manner and use them for your meals and soups. Bon Appetit!
