Culinary culture of Cappadocian Orthodox Greeks is very rich indeed. It is possible to observe the signs of this culture in the Cappadocian meals today.
Meals such as Stuffed Apple, Stuffed Quince, Stuffed Apricot are inherited from the cuisine culture of Cappadocian Greeks. These are festival and Christmas meals of the Greeks.
Another special day meal of Greeks was “KAYGANA” which was made of eggs,flour,oil and honey. It was cooked in Christmas time in some of the Cappadocia villages due to confinement of Virgin Mary. The bridegroom was fed with “KAYGANA” with a wish for abundance and fertilization.
Another meal for special occasions and festivals and wedding ceremonies of the Greeks was “KEŞKEK”. The Greeks that lived around Konya and surrounding villages called Keşkek as “HERSE”. Keşkek was named as “HERİSE” during the Seljuk Period in Konya.
Keşkek which symbolises the Altar and fertility is depicted as follows by Kiryaki Mandeoğlu from Permata Village of Akşehir:
“We put some meat, wheat, salt and water in a pot and braised it on a very low heat in a wood oven. Then, we mashed it with a wooden spoon until it turned into a batter. Then we poured roasted onion and hot butter on it and ate.”
