HISTORY OF TURKISH CUISINE
We all know that Turkish food is one of the most varied and, of course, delicious cuisines in the world. But where did it come from? Turkish cuisine is a direct descendant of Ottoman cuisine, which in turn comes from Central Asia, the Middle East, and the Balkans. And within Turkish cuisine, there is a wonderful diversity of regional specialties. The Aegean region, which includes Istanbul, is savory, with lots of rice and seafood. The Black Sea region, where the cuisine in heavily influenced by Slavic cuisine, specializes in fish and is famous for hamsi, those delightful Black Sea anchovies. Finally, in the southeast of Turkey, we get the most famous of all Turkish foods, the kebab, as well as Turkish desserts, such as baklava and kadayif.
