Turkish Flat Bread – Pide

My passion with food started when I was coming from scholl and following the smell of the freshly made home cooking by my mother and helping her in the kitchen with basic tasks.

Turkish cuisine is renowned as one of the world’s best but do not known very well. It is considered to be one of the four main cuisines of the world because of the variety of its recipes, its use of natural ingredients, its flavours and tastes that appeal to all food lovers and its influence throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The cuisine originated in central Asia next to China and Russia, the first home of the Turks, and then evolved with the contributions of the inland and Mediterranean cultures with which Turks interacted after their arrival in Anatolia in Ottoman time. Turkish cuisine is in a sense a bridge between far-Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, with the accent always on enhancing the natural taste and flavour of the ingredients. There is no one dominant element in Turkish cuisine, like sauces in French and pasta in Italian cuisines.

    Thank you for a very pleasant and interesting cookery lesson today. Alan and I enjoyed cooking alongside you and eating the food in your company. I particularly liked the spinach, yoghurt and nut salad. I’m looking forward to using some of your blog recipes in my own kitchen. You are a very gracious and enthusiastic teacher.

    I cannot say enough good words about my cookery course. The range of dishes and new tastes of delicious food surprised and delighted me. We cooked aubergines on the barbecue for dips. I learned how to make a Turkish ravioli and beautiful tomato sauce. Aslan was always giving tips and stories of his homeland which made for a very interesting day. We sipped Turkish tea and ate home made cookies. I returned home full of good ideas to try with the family. Cannot wait to go back again.
