Ozlem’s Turkish Table book tour in Turkey and the UK
It’s been a very busy but magical few months launching Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book , book signings and events in the UK and in Turkey. With this note, my sincere thanks goes to Pinar Foods UK for all their kind support for my book. A special highlight has been sharing my book with my dear parents, Orhan and Gulcin, at our book launch at the lovely Zen Seramics in Istanbul. My parents have always been my inspiration with their passion for Turkish cuisine and generosity in sharing, so it was a very special moment to present the book to them. The book has a lot of personal stories and our family heritage and they joyfully grabbed Ozlem’s Turkish Table with both hands with high on emotion (and some happy tears); I think my dad bought over 10 copies to proudly gift to family and friends! Most kind and I can not thank them enough for all their love and support.
I visited Fethiye at early May as part of Ozlem’s Turkish Table book tour; it was a very special visit meeting Turkish food lovers at the lovely Yakamoz Hotel over a delicious Turkish breakfast and at the delightful Mozaik Bahce, at our Antakya style dinner. It was a very memorable trip and I can not thank dear Lyn Ward from Fethiye Times enough for arranging our events in Fethiye and all her support. My sincere thanks to everyone who joined our events and their kind interest for my book and to Yakamoz Hotel and Mozaik Bahce for their amazing Turkish hospitality – I can’t wait to be back!
We have done lots of events and book signings in the UK too and it was so lovely to see everyone’s interest for Turkish cuisine and Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book. One of these book signings were at the One Tree Book Store in Petersfield; a delightful book store at the heart of the community with the lovely Madeleine’s Kitchen Cafe attached to it. One Tree Book Store arranged a lovely book talk and interview with me and the Madeleine’s Kitchen served Spicy bulgur and Lentil Soup, Ezo Gelin Corbasi, Courgette fritters with feta and dill, Mucver and Revani, Semolina Sponge cake from Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book, to a very enthusiastic crowd of 35 folks. It was a magical evening meeting Turkish food lovers and exchanging stories. You can get copies of Ozlem’s Turkish Table at One Tree Book Store.

Some Popular Recipes from Ozlem’s Turkish Table to share
Here are some of the recipes that have been popular from Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book, I hope you enjoy recreating them:
Pide bread (pide ekmek), Turkish round flat breads are a personal favorite and special especially during Ramadan, as we traditionally break the fast with pide. Many of my readers have been making Pide ekmek at home from Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book (page 107). Here’s also the link to my Pide bread recipe if you’d like to make it.
This Turkish meatballs with vegetables casserole, Firinda Sebzeli Kofte, has been another favourite from Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book (page 179); I love that you can made this all-in-one pot easy, delicious meal ahead of time and left overs freeze beautifully, a real crowd pleaser – here’s the link to my recipe.
This simple Baked cauliflower with red onions, feta and dill is my family’s favorite from Ozlem’s Turkish Table (page 165) – as a matter of fact, I made twice this week! – Such a lovely and easy way to enjoy and flavour cauliflower, great as a side or as part of your meze spread, here’s the link to my recipe.
I hope you enjoy the recipes and if you’d like to order a signed copy of Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book, you can order at this link, with prompt delivery.
