The Heart of Albanian Cooking

A virtual talk later this month through the Museum of Food and Drink celebrates Albanian cooks and their dishes.


By Florence Fabricant

Albanian cuisine — woven from threads of Balkan, Mediterranean and Ottoman traditions — features dishes like stuffed vegetables, phyllo pastries, meatballs and yogurt. For more details transmitted straight from Albania, the Museum of Food and Drink and the Greene Space have organized a virtual 90-minute talk and a cooking demonstration. Representatives from RRNO, a group of Albanian chefs with a mission to preserve and promote the cuisine, will discuss it and demonstrate two recipes at the end.

“Albanian Gastronomy: From Identity Dilemma to Rural Renaissance,” Museum of Food and Drink, 7 p.m., May 27, tickets, $20, mofad.org.
