Dinner Club strikes again -Anisa’s Kitchen: Two new easy recipes for hungry students

Cooking and sharing a meal always brings  people together and we proved this true again on a cold winter night in Naryn, Kyrgyzstan.  10 students and 2 staff members cooked and ate  a delicious meal together and had fun learning new recipes and sharing conversation.

Anisa Abibulloeva, cook extraordinaire from Dushanbe, Tajikistan taught some easy recipes to students and staff who need both good nutrition and comfort food.  The highlight was a cheesey garlic bread that was so gooey and delicious both big French loaves disappeared in minutes.


Anisa’s Famous Cheesey Garlic Bread

Recipe for Anisa’s Cheesey Garlic Bread

2 cups of grated cheddar and parmesan cheese

2 cloves crushed garlic

2 Tablespoons fresh dill, parsley and chives (or whatever fresh or dried herbs you have available)

salt, pepper, enough olive oil or butter to help the cheese stick together


  1. Slice loaf of bread not quite through so the pieces are still attached to the bottom of the loaf.
  2.  Stuff the cheese mixture between the slices of bread (loaves a couple days old are best so they are not too soft).
  3. Wrap in foil and make for 15 minutes at 350 degree F. until crispy on the outside and all the cheese is melted and gooey on the inside.
  4. Tear off chunks to eat with a winter hearty soup!
