Anatolia: Adventures in Turkish Cooking

by David Dale and Somer Sivrioglu


Co-authors Somer Sivrioglu and David Dale kick off this context-rich collection, arranged to resemble a typical Turkish eating day, with a recipe for simit, a sesame-seed encrusted halo of bread that’s ubiquitous across the Eurasian country. Other dishes, which highlight Greek and Jewish influences, include Nettle and Feta Fritters, a Prawn and Haloumi Casserole, and several spins on baklava.
