A while ago, family and friends took a trip to Turkey and Greece. Some of the photos are posted in another Blog. Today, I would like to share with your some of the dishes that we had during the trip.
The key ingredients used in Turkish cuisine are: lamb, beef, fish, vegetables like eggplants, beans, tomatoes. Greek cuisine and Turkish cuisine share some similarities, especially desserts like baklava, which are quite sweet for me. I did enjoy all of them.
I took a lot of food pictures, like many of my fellow bloggers, and no one queried me….because I was a tourist!!
Even now, I still enjoy looking at these mouth-watering dishes, and hope I will return some day, to appreciate the ancient cultures and beautiful art, as well as the delicious food and friendliness of the people in these two countries.
Posted above is a slide show of the food pictures. I have also included an image gallery here. Please click on any of the images in the gallery below, and you will see the pictures in carousel view. Enjoy!
