Seasonal, colorful fruit and vegetables; a very important part of the Turkish Cuisine
Turkish cuisine is healthy, delicious and most Turkish recipes are so easy to prepare. We use seasonal produce, and spice up, flavor our dishes using spices, olive oil, nuts and other natural ingredients.
Aromatic, fragrant spices are at the heart of Turkish cuisine to flavor our dishes

Circassian Chicken, Cerkez Tavugu is a delicious and healthy garlicky, red pepper flakes and olive oil infused sauce - simply irresistable
The story of the Circassian Chicken says; during the Ottoman reign, the Sultans took a particular liking to women of Circassian origin and many were captured to serve in the harems as concubines and wives. These fair beauties delighted the Sultans and with them came this dish. Originally the dish was made with fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves, used liberally in Circassian cuisine. However the Palace chefs decided to create their own tamer version. This is a great option for a light lunch, served with a green salad and toasted bread or steamed vegetables. The left overs of wonderful dish also makes a great sandwich filler!

Good Luck with the event – I wish I’d discovered your blog before I left the UK as I was in the next county! Cicassian chicken was one of the first dishes I learnt to cook for large parties, when I had no idea I would eventually end up in Turkey – Fate?
So kind of you to stop by and how I wished that you were at the next county too!!:) It sure is fate and I am glad you are in Bodrum and enjoying – hope our roads cross sometime!
