Gastronomy in TURKEY


One of the specialties of Turkey is to touch and captivate all your senses. An atmosphere of luxury, maybe candle light for ambience, before the ceremony begins with the satisfying pop of cork. Festival begins with the taste of Turkish meze (appetizers), together with spices from Anatolia and olive oil from the Aegean Coast. After this welcome, warm greetings continue with world famous foods like tandoor from central Anatolia, Adana & shish kebab from the Mediterranean coast, and Eggplant & Urfa kebabs from Eastern Anatolia. Ottoman cuisine is full of indescribable tastes from first to last… Baklava, chicken-breast pudding, and other lush, intense desserts whisper that the festival will end soon. Strong, aromatic Turkish coffee along with double-baked lokum, Turkish delights, finishes the festival with its bitter-sweet taste.


 

DID YOU KNOW ?

» A traditional baklava has at least 40 layers.

» In the chicken breast pudding, we really use chicken breasts

» As a tradition of Anatolian culture, one extra spoon is always presented in the dining table for unexpected guest of God.
