#foodandlit 2024 July | #Turkey
@catsandbooks @texreader

Looking for something to share about Turkey, I found two great restaurants to try.
One is Turco, in my neighbourhood, just round the corner where I live, and the other one, Ali Ocakbaşı walking half an hour!
Both seem to offer authentic Turkish dishes.
On my list when back from summer holiday!

I googled Turkish lamb stew, & found hünkar beğendi (sultan's delight): lamb cooked with onions, tomatoes & peppers, served on puréed eggplant mixed with béchamel sauce (and cheese). Nice and easy. Allegedly invented for the visit of Empress Eugénie (wife of Napoléon III) to Topkapi Palace.
Stew pretty much a “basquaise“ that would have been familiar to Eugénie who spent her holidays in Biarritz! 😂

Texreader Yummy!! 1d
Dilara Also finished The Caravan Moves On yesterday. It's most probably a novel masquerading as a travelogue - that's slightly disappointing because I don't know what's invention and what's true about the Yürük tribe! 1d

Got a cute background from a Google search of Istanbul, Turkey to show off our version of a Turkish flatbread pizza (that our young kids will eat). 🇹🇷🤣😍💛 #FoodandLit

“We had patlican karniyarık, young aubergines filled with meat and herbs and slices of tomato steeped in red wine; chicken pilav; green peppers stuffed with rice and wild chicory; and melons served on ice“
I could make that meal! In fact I made karniyarık a couple of weeks ago, although my recipe didn't call for steeping the tomato slices in wine.

I enjoyed Portrait of a Turkish Family enough to start another book by the same author. This one is about his stay with the Yürük nomads in the High Taurus mountains.
Paired with Turkish salep-flavoured icecream - a chance find: I was looking for Turkish coffee (they were out), and saw a glimpse of a tub of something interesting in the freezer. I'd never seen it before, although I've had salep as a hot drink before.

Texreader How was the ice cream? 4d
Dilara @Texreader It tastes nice (pretty similar to vanilla), it's very creamy but with an unusual texture - halfway between regular icecream and marshmallow. The ingredients list is shocking though: very long, very industrial 😕 Oh well! (edited) 4d

A bit late on this one, but today we had some pancakes for #FoodAndLit #Iceland

They had a little bit of cinnamon and nutmeg in the batter which made them extra tasty!

TheBookHippie Yummmm 5d
Texreader Oh I‘d eat that in a heartbeat. 😋 5d
