Indispensable for natural life, it is the hottest part of Anatolian houses, giving insatiable flavor to brewed teas, hot breads and fried buns.
On the feast mornings, the grandmothers and mothers would light the tandoor before dawn. The meals would be cooked, the tea would be brewed, and the whole family, spouse, friends and relatives would meet at the table together with the men coming from the prayer.
Every beauty destroyed by modern life can be experienced in the tandoori … The tandoori section of our museum is a small point of resistance to remind us of our beauties destroyed by concrete and modern life.
When my grandmother left the house to graze animals, I missed the donut (pağaç) that she cooked in a tandoori and held in my hand at dawn …
I missed my grandmother more.
