A Speciality from Antakya: Lakmi Le Varka/Ground Beef with lots of Fresh Herbs & Baked in the Oven A Speciality from Antakya: Lakmi Le Varka/Ground Beef with lots of Fresh Herbs & Baked in the Oven By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 12/11/14 09:16 The other day a friend of mine in the UK emailed me for suggestions for a good Turkish cookbook to buy as a Christmas present for her SIL. So I actually stopped and reviewed my own selection. I have a lot both in English and Turkish, but I also refer to...
Sahlep: a Wonderful Turkish Winter Beverage: December '14 Sahlep: a Wonderful Turkish Winter Beverage: December '14 By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 12/05/14 15:07 I originally wrote this post in the winter of 2011. That's quite some time ago so I thought I'd give it a little airing as it's one of my favourites. Not that it's been resting unnoticed as it's had more than 7000 pageviews in the interim. It's winter time...

Mediterranean Tarts with Bulgur/Bulgurla Akdeniz Tartları Mediterranean Tarts with Bulgur/Bulgurla Akdeniz Tartları By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 11/24/14 21:05 A soon as I saw the pictures of these tarts, I knew I would love them. I then read the recipes and loved them even further. The pastry is made with the köftelik bulgur or fine-grain bulgur wheat. The amount makes enough for two tarts, one with olives, green...

Very Seasonal Bonito Baked in the Oven/Takoz Palamut Very Seasonal Bonito Baked in the Oven/Takoz Palamut By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 11/10/14 18:02 If you want a true example of what seasonal means, just pay a visit to one of the large fish markets of Istanbul.

Beetroot Leaf Sauté with Chickpeas and Potato Beetroot Leaf Sauté with Chickpeas and Potato By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 11/04/14 20:08 I'm not translating this one into Turkish because in fact, despite the Turkish-sounding ingredients, it's an Observer recipe from Nigel Slater, veteran English food writer. It comes from the Observer Food Monthly which I happened to read when I was delayed...

We were on a photo trek and the day had been chosen because it was the island's weekly market day. We were so...

Back in my own kitchen and getting back into my old routine helps. And I really am a big fan of this nutty grain: I like its taste and the fact it's so healthy...
Kısır/Spicy Bulgur Salad with Tomatoes and Pomegranate Molasses Kısır/Spicy Bulgur Salad with Tomatoes and Pomegranate Molasses By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 10/22/14 21:47 I think that in the 4-year career of my blog, this is the longest gap that has ever occurred between posts. And the reason is travel. Travel is truly my favourite thing (and luckily, TT's) and I have had two fabulous trips recently: one to Paris and the...

The temperature has dropped, that beautiful blue sky is now overcast and downright grey. Time to wear socks and forget about France! All summer long, nary a thought of soup entered my head. Not even a cold soup as I...
A Sunday Market in Provence A Sunday Market in Provence By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 09/23/14 16:54 Funny squashed-looking peaches/nectarines on sale just down from Montmartre in Paris - personally I prefer the taste of our Bursa ones If you have been following my blog at all, you will all know that I love a good market.

From Assos .... to paris From Assos .... to paris By A Seasonal Cook in Turkey 09/15/14 11:07 In less than a week, we have moved from the rural delights of our Aegean village to the sophistication of Paris.

Here in the Assos region, those from the tarla or fields around Çanakkale are the ones most available and well-deservedly considered the best. In the pazars, they cost...
