Discover local Turkish gems
Turkish cuisine is an ancient collection of tradition changed by the slow march of entering neighbouring cuisines. Western European cuisine contributes cheese-making techniques and vegetables, the use of yoghurt enters from central Asia, and the Middle East contributes the spices. Bread is typical throughout accompanied by beetroot, carrot, cucumber, and eggplant. Olive oil, yoghurt, tahini and hummus complete the meal. Turkish breads are cooked in brick ovens, but the Australian version is frequently cooked over hot coals. Popular dishes include the Doner Kebab, Pilaf, Dolma, and of course when it comes to the sweet stuff, Turkish Delight!
Decisions, decisions, decisions. Fancy a bit of everything? Like Hummus (a dip of mashed chickpeas, perfect with warm pitta or fresh veg)? Or Kofta (meatballs of minced meat, spices and onions)? Or Falafel (deep-fried balls made from ground chickpeas and fava beans)? Or Kibbeh (a croquette-like shell filled with finely ground beef or lamb, bulgur, minced onions and spices)? Or Dolma (a flavoursome family of stuffed veggie dishes including vine leaves, peppers, eggplant and zucchini (courgette)? Then you only need to know three words: Meze! (The other two are Menu and Log.) This will bring a family-sized-feast-of-flavours sizzling straight to your own home.
Turkish desserts offer more than one delight. Baklava is a rich, sweet dessert pastry made from layer upon layer of filo crammed with chopped nuts and held together with sticky syrup or honey. Turkish Delight (or Lokum) delights more that just Turkey – it gifts the whole world with (guilty) pleasure. Premium varieties consist of chopped dates, pistachios, hazelnuts and walnuts – all gelled together – and flavoured with rosewater, Bergamot orange, or lemon. Halva is an irresistibly dense sweet confection formed from a crystallised paste of sesame seeds and sugar. Kanafeh is made with a thin noodle-like pastry, soaked in sweet sugar-based syrup and often layered with cheese, clotted cream or nuts. You’d be nuts not to.
