Çorum’s registered flavor: “İskilip Ramadan Keşkeği”

İskilip Ramadan Keşkeği, which is included in UNESCO's "Intangible Cultural Heritage List" in Çorum's İskilip district, attracts great attention with the beginning of Ramadan every year.

Early in the morning, the pots filled with wheat halves, meat with bones, tomatoes, onions, butter and various spices are left in the ovens in the district center.

The keşkek, cooked by oven masters in wood fire, is distributed in containers where the owners are indicated. Keskek, which has received a geographical sign with the work of İskilip Municipality, is sent to neighboring provinces, especially Çorum and Ankara, by keeping its temperature for a long time after cooking due to its pottery structure.

With its inclusion in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List, it continues to decorate iftar tables.

Ayşe Erdoğan, one of the bakery operators of İskilip, stated that the interest in keskek is increasing every year and that they are happy to keep their traditions alive.
