“Did you know it is said that three major kinds of cuisine exist in the world: Chinese, French and Turkish! The variety and simplicity of the recipes along with the quality of the ingredients guarantees a wonderful experience,” writes Joan Scanlon, Head of Sales & Operations, Wings Abroad Holidays.
“With a vast variety of delicious and exotic dishes to choose from, Turkey is definitely a food lover’s paradise, so to help make sure your clients don’t miss out on any Turkish delights, here are the top three traditional dishes that they should try on their trip.
“These are Turkish minced lamb meatballs infused with herbs such as mint and parsley. They can come in many shapes and sizes, but most often you will see them rolled into fingers and cooked on a grill. You can find Köfte anywhere in Turkey from small restaurants to roadside food stands, where they are often served alongside fresh Turkish bread.
2. Iskender Kebab
“Although kebabs are readily available almost anywhere these days, it really requires a trip to Turkey to taste the real thing. An Iskender Kebab is sliced lamb doner meat on top of pieces of pita bread covered in tomato sauce and topped with yoghurt – and could very easily become your new favourite meal!
“Imagine fine layers of filo pastry filled with chopped nuts and covered in mouth-watering sweet syrup and you have an idea of what Baklava tastes like. You will find these little pieces of heaven in any Turkish cake shop – and once you try one, you can guarantee you will be going back for more!”
