  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 29: Kol böreği December 15, 2017
    Kol böreği is a dish made with puff pastry, rolled up into long pieces – hence the ‘kol’ (arm) in the name. It’s quite soft and a little greasy but so good. The fillings vary – potato, cheese, mincemeat etc. My favourite are the potato or mincemeat ones. We used to eat these for breakfast/brunch […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 28: şehriyeli pilav (Turkish rice) December 14, 2017
    Turkish rice, the kind with the little brown bits in, is my favourite. It’s buttery, soft fluffy and a staple part of Turkish cuisine – a great side dish to any meal. It’s even a meal on its own with chick peas or beans. The little brown bits are şehriye ( you might know it as […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 27: TOST December 13, 2017
      One of my favourite, quick, simple and most importantly – cheap, lunchtime snacks in Turkey is tost. Not to be confused with British toast, the type served with butter and jam, Turkish tost is a Turkish bread sliced down the middle, stuffed with delicious fillings, cooked in a heavy iron press and served with a […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 26: Keşkek December 12, 2017
    Keşkek is a very traditional part of Turkish weddings and they take great pride in cooking it. It’s a weird food, served at special occasions, weddings, funerals, religious celebrations etc. A lot of people are involved in the preparing and cooking. It’s made from wheat, locally produced from the villages in most cases, and ground […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 25: Baklava December 11, 2017
      Baklava is a sweet dessert, made from layers of filo pastry and melted butter, and layers of nuts (pistachio or walnut).  It’s cut into rectangle, diamond or triangle shapes then baked. Once baked, a syrup is poured over, making it sticky and sweet. The thin, crispy filo pastry is softened by the syrup as […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 24: LAHMACUN December 8, 2017
    Lahmacun is a very thin round flatbread. The dough is rolled thin and topped with a minced meat mixture – lamb or beef mixed with very finely chopped tomatoes, onions, parsley and spices. It’s served with salad and lemon. You squeeze the lemon on to the Lahmacun, put some salad on it then roll it […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 23: CHIPS FOR BREAKFAST? December 7, 2017
    Ok, so not really a dish, but I thought it was interesting to write about. There’s an assumption that chips are only served with breakfast in holiday resorts in Turkey to please tourists, but that’s not true! Berkay’s family often serve up chips for breakfast, but usually cold, either leftovers from the night before, or […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 22: Çay (Turkish Tea) December 6, 2017
    Çay is probably the most popular drink in Turkey. It is strong, fragrant black tea, grown in the black sea region. It’s brewed in a special teapot, called a çaydanlık, and you can get really beautiful decorative ones! The tea is served in small tulip shaped glasses, usually a cube or spoon of sugar is added.. […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 21: Kuzu şiş December 5, 2017
    Kuzu şiş (lamb shish) is a simple kebab dish, but delicious. Marinated cubes of lamb on skewers, cooked perfectly and served with special flat bread (which is hiding some of the meat in my photo above), rice, grilled peppers, onions and tomatoes, and raw onion salad with sumac sprinkled on top. Perfect when the meat […]

  • 30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 20: CHICKEN DÖNER December 4, 2017
    A Turkish döner kebab is nothing like the ones you’ve come across in the UK. I’ve never had a lamb one, but chicken döner is one of my favourite fast foods! The name relates to the way the seasoned meat is cooked slowly on a vertical rotisserie. As the outside layers of meat get cooked, they are […]
