Travel and eat well: Turkish flavors

Turkey is known to be the country of loukoum and kebab. Fortunately, there is much more to discover. We loved everything we tasted in Turkey, and we tasted a lot!

First of all, special mention to Baklava, the Turkish pride but also the Turkish anger when people think that it's from Greece :-)

There are some varieties of baklava, with walnut, almond, pistachio, or hazelnuts (especially along the Black Sea coast, the best place for hazelnuts) but all deliciously wrapped by filo pasta and honey.




Yogurt corbasi (soup of yogurt): a wonderfully delicious soup.

Normally, every kind of Turkish soup is worth trying: lentile soup, meat soup, soup with tongue, with intestine....

üzümlü pirinç pilavı: rice pilaf



Manti: turkish typical ravioli. Those tiny ravioli are considered perfect when a spoon could hold 14 of them !!!! Really a must


(Only women are patient enough to do this :-)

(with yogourt and butter "noisette" and chili, soooo delicious)


We forgot the name of those little things, made of bulgur, tomato and herbe: perfect finger food :-)



Yaprak Sarma: wine leaves stuffed with rice. They are also very popular in Greece. The criteria of a good yaprak sarma is that it shouldn't be bigger than a woman's finger !!!

Eggplant dolma: dried eggplant stuffed with rice or meat.

hurma tatlisi: wonderful dessert with nuts



Kunefi: dessert of pasta kataif with cheese, pistachio and sour cream. A bomb!!!


Ayran (drinking yogourt): you can find it everywhere. It's very hydrating and energetic.
