Turkish Cuisine – A Symphony of Colors, Textures, and Flavors

Turkish cuisine is among the 10 most attractive cuisines in the world, more precisely, it is the third cuisine in the world if we evaluate quality and variety (after French and Chinese cuisine).
The ancient nomadic life, the area with different flora and fauna that extends through seven geographical zones, and the legacy of the rich imperial cuisine are the three fundamental elements that influence Turkish cuisine to be synonymous with gastronomic art.

Bread

The basis of Turkish cuisine is dough from wheat flour for the inevitable white bread (ekmek), simit, manti (dough), and jufka (puff pastry). In addition to bread, an important place in Turkish cuisine has pilaf – a rice dish. It is being prepared in many ways, served hot or cold, it can be a good addition to the meat, or as a main dish.

Bread

Fish

Turkey is a country with four seas and people who live there are real masters in preparing fish and seafood. One of the most famous Turkish fish is “Cupra” (Dorado). Dorado is a popular and delicious fish in Turkish cuisine, known for its delicate flavor and tender flesh. We prepare and serve it grilled, with a variety of seasonal vegetables, salad, bulgur, fries, and bread.

Dorado (Cupra) Fish Dinner

Meat

As a rule, meat is used in smaller quantities. Chicken and beef meat are used a lot, while pork in general is not popular in Turkey. Among the most famous dishes are Shish Kebap – pieces of meat strung on a skewer and Beef Doner dish.

It’s a refreshing and colorful salad that’s often served as a side dish. It complements a wide range of Turkish dishes, such as kebaps and grilled meats.

Desserts

Turkish cuisine represents a real wealth of desserts. The most famous is baklava.

Each bite is a harmonious balance of textures and flavors, making it an irresistible treat.
