ELMSFORD, N.Y. -- Turkish Cultural Center Westchester will celebrate Ashure (Noah's Pudding) Day on Friday at 7 p.m. in Elmsford.
Admission is free, and Turkish food will be served. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (347)-251-2387.
Ashure (Noah's Pudding) is a dessert prepared by cooking many different kinds of fruits, nuts and wheat in the same pan. It has a very rich ingredients list, where one can see walnuts, hazelnuts, dried figs, pomegranate seeds, wheat grains, ground orange particles and beans.
Having the same name and being sweet in common but changing in flavor with the combination of those ingredients, Ashure reminds its tasters that they are all human in the end, no matter what they believe, what they look like and what language they speak. They can be friends, share their lives and build a "sweet" society together just like those various kinds of ingredients cooked in the same pan.
Ashure is a call for uniting, sharing, caring and understanding each other for a better life. Thus, TCC Westchester, inspired by Ashure, invited people of different nations, cultures and faiths to celebrate Ashure Day.
Turkish Cultural Center Westchester is at 133 E Main St. No, 101, Elmsford.
