Flavors of Turkey

With all the spices available at the Mısır Çarşı, I think some people would believe that Turkish food is inherently spicy hot. Most of the time it isn't. What is Turkish cuisine: lots of olive oil, pilavs, all sorts of vegetable dishes, kebabs and koftes (meatballs), awesome fetas and of course Baklava. That's really just a slice of what's available! If got into the dolmas (stuffed anything) and meze, I'd be here all day.

Are you hungry?

Sheilah Kaufman spent some time in Turkey exploring the countryside and the cuisine. Then she and Nur Ilkin whipped up The Turkish Cookbook. The title earned a spot on the Washington Post's Top Cookbooks of 2010 list.

Might be a good place to spend that gift card you got for the holidays...
