The Man of the House has family from Turkey. We enjoy hearing about life in the old country. The city names sound exotic – Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and Kayseri. There are family stories about a man who owned a rug shop and others about a family vineyard.
Sometimes we’ve tried making Turkish recipes but they’re hard to find. I recently saw a website that’s very helpful in this regard – Binnur’s Turkish Cookbook. Each recipe has a gorgeous photo and the instructions are easy to follow. I think THOTH and I might try the Green Beans with Eggs.
