Aunt Arpie’s Celery Stew (Geragoor) with Kufteh Balls and Egg-Lemon Sauce
Retired culinary teacher Robyn Kalajian received this recipe from her beloved Arpie Vartanesian, who lived in Florida, and who passed away in 2014 at age 89.
One day, Aunt Arpie said she was craving Celery Stew with Kufteh Balls, which she had made many times through the years.
“The way in which my Aunt Arpie described this recipe was sheer poetry. Her description of this delicious celery stew was so heavenly, she made my mouth water. Since she was not cooking so much at the time, I promised to prepare her celery stew recipe, making enough to share with her. Aunt Arpie put away her rolling pin and pans a few years before she passed away, but she never lost interest in eating a good meal or just talking about it.”
