Today was a fun fieldwork day. We popped over to Behar Café to sample their cevapi, burek, & coffee, and to check out some of the food items they carry. Behar is a Bosnian restaurant and grocery in Bowling Green, KY that specializes in cooking and selling items important to Bosnian foodways traditions, such as sausage and pita.

From the archives: Senida Husic and her family cooking up a pot of kupus in their Bowling Green, KY home. Husic described: “The part of [Bosnia] where my family is from, the stew is called ‘kupus’ which is essentially just ‘cabbage’. There are different variations of how it’s made, family to family, but mostly it’s referred to as kupus.”
