Extended Food in Manisa

Gygaia Projects

As part of the SOFRA project, Gülşah Şenkol spent a week at the Asphodel Center. During this time, she spent her days documenting women’s cooperative initiatives in the region of Manisa. This took her to Salihli, Kemer, Gökeyüp, Adala, Soma, Darkale, Demirci, Kula, and Alaşehir.

Women here showed great passion for their love of Turkish foods, the sharing of recipes, and the importance of meals among friends and families. Many of these women then signed up to attend a cooking workshop at the Asphodel Center later in the year (see a later post!).

Look forward to more posts from Gygaia Projects soon!
