Four Turkish Food Blogs
1 : My Turkish Joys
An American expat living in Istanbul, Joyce concentrates on “Living and Cooking in Turkey. Eating and Traveling Everywhere.” She has baked for the local neighbourhood before and must have impressed them as they invited her back.
Recipe to Try : Those of you living in Turkey will have noticed, cherries are now in season and sold everywhere, so try Joyce’s new recipe for Cherry – Lemonade Cocktail, the perfect thing for hot summer days.
2 : Ozlem’s Turkish Table
Ozlem was born and bred in Turkey but now lives as an expat in England. A love for food in general led her to start the blog, as well as cooking classes, culinary and culture tours.
She promises to help you “recreate wonderful recipes in your own home”
Which recipe grabbed my attention? Well everyone loves Turkish delight so it just has to be homemade Turkish delight of course!
3 : A Seasonal Cook in Turkey
Claudia not only delivers great recipes but she is always visiting local markets and exploring.
While most people will opt for a cat or a dog as a pet, she has taken charge of 17 milk-producing cows instead!
Recipe that sounds tasty : I could not choose between two so I have included both as they make a complete meal – Does Sumakli Kofte with a simple but tasty “Turkish Shepherds Salad” tempt your taste buds?
4 : Almost Turkish Recipes
Burcu was born and raised in Turkey but now lives in the States. She focuses on traditional Turkish recipes but also gets inspiration to create her own dishes, hence the blog name.
Check out dishes for summer and winter, the red meat section also has plenty of tasty options.
Which recipe appeals to me? : This recipe for tomato soup with Greek noodle nests really caught my eye.
