From the sumptuous buttery pide of Samsun on the Black Sea to the fiery kebabs of the east, Turkish cuisine is regional, seasonal, and steeped in history. Opulent Ottoman dishes first eaten centuries ago in the sultans' palaces, humble peasant stews, and mouth-watering street food all come together in this collection of over 100 aromatic and alluring recipes. Turkey is home to a varied cuisine that begs to be explored, region by region; from the huge, snow-capped mountains of the East and the vast, lake-covered plains of the center to the balmy Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. Discover the Iskender kebab from the city of Bursa in the northwest, sample the Akcaabat Beef Koefte from the Black Sea region, and give in to temptation by tasting sweet Katmer pastries from Gaziantep. With inspiring and exciting dishes covering everything from Turkish breakfasts and salads to delicious kebabs and exquisite seafood, plus sweet dishes, let John Gregory-Smith show you his world of Turkish Delights.
