Today I am going to introduce you to my first series on this blog!! I was dreaming about this for quite some time now, but it took some preparation and time to make it happen 🙂
As you might or might not know I really love to travel. Especially Ireland and Turkey feel like my second homes! This is mostly because of the very warm welcome I have been given and the openness and hospitality of the people there!
I love to discover new cultures!! I love to do sightseeing and experience the way of life the people are having there! This applies of course especially for the food culture too! I am always excited to try new things and ways of cooking and also embed what I’ve learned in my cooking at home. Just last night I whipped up a quick dinner turkish style for me and my flatmate and we were both very pleased with the result 🙂
Now what I want to do is not only have those experiences on my own but rather share them with you!!
From tomorrow on you can find a new series on this blog. It is called: Around The World, Week By Week!!
For a whole week I will feature the culture especially in food of one country!! I will tell you about eating habbits and their way of life and some stories about what I have been experiencing there! You will get a new recipe of a different category each day and by the end of the week there will be a little special extra too 🙂 I plan to do a new country every month!
The first country I feature will be TURKEY!
I have been spending two months last summer in Izmir at the west coast working at the University of Izmir. It was my first time in this beautiful country and I really had such a great time!!
Here are the categories of the recipes I will share:
Monday: Appetizer (Sigara Böreği)
Tuesday: Main Course (Köfte, Cacık & Pirinç Pilavı)
Wednesday: Dessert (Künefe)
Thursday: Drink (Ayran)
Friday: Salad (Kısır)
Saturday: Pastry (Kurabiye)
Sunday: Fast Food or Snack (Lahmacun)
