Recipe by AcadiaTwo

This is another recipe my DD learned to make at ACCC culinary school. She loved this, but I have not tried it. It is a dish from Turkey called Laban Ummu.

This is totally delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and served the dish with roasted potatoes and asparagus tips. It's so easy and elegant that I intend to keep it in my dinner party cookbook.
