Ingredients

  • We use lamb, yogurt, pul biber and more

Turkish-style eggs

Try these quick and easy Turkish-style eggs with crunchy sourdough for your next brunch. Traditionally you’d use pul biber (Turkish chilli flakes) but smoked paprika gives a smoky kick and a beautiful red colour.

Classic manti

When it comes to comfort food, dumplings always fit the bill. The Polish have pierogi, Italians have ravioli, the Chinese have dim sum – and in Turkey they have manti. Try our recipe for a delicious starter.

Keşkek with aleppo pepper butter and gözleme with caçik

At the heart of this Turkish-inspired feast is keşkek – a rich, spiced lamb stew that’s thickened with bulgar wheat. To accompany the stew are soft Turkish gözleme (flatbreads stuffed with leeks, halloumi and aromatic spices), and caçik, a cooling yogurt and cucumber dip.
