A drink she never heard of its name was offered by Fatih Usta while she was tasting the local dishes. When exploring the drink, what people in Kastamonu called “egsi”, she listened to its story from a friend whom she had chatted with during a meal. Egsi was made with the fruit, of which nature showed most of its generosity over the year. Egsi couldbe prepared as marmalade and could also be consumed in breakfasts as well as served as natural fruit juice next to the meal when it was diluted. However, the original and genuine egsi was made of apples rather than other fruits. A little sour cranberries were added to give a slightly piquant flavor. When the meal was finished, she was grateful for the food that embellished the chat and the beautiful moment she lived, while enjoying the taste that egsi left on her palate.
