Traditional Turkish Delights
Turkish food is a fusion of many cuisines such as Mediterranean, Balkan, Middle Eastern, Eastern European, and Central Asian cuisines. It varies across the country and every region has its own specialties. In this section, you will find a selection of regional dishes as well as popular dishes all around the world.
Dips and Mezes
Mezze recipes have an important place in Turkish & Mediterranean Cuisine. They are small plates for sharing, similar to tapas or appetizers, and are one of my favorite ways to eat.
You can browse in this section my favorite mezze and dips such as Çerkez Tavugu (Circassian Chicken), Tirokafteri (Spicy Whipped Feta Dip), and Easy Authentic Hummus Recipe, and more! Don't forget the Greek Pita Bread, as bread is the heart of a mezze spread.
