Bloggers Around the World: Turkey

There is a lot going on at the moment. It seems I am rushing from blog post to blog post. Now, here is one I need to get up and running and then I can start to relax a bit ... if I want to, not sure, though, whether I really want to. Some days yes and some days no. It comes without warning. However, the announcement for the next destination for our Bloggers Around the World challenge is not suddenly. You knew it has to come at some point at the beginning of the month.

Fine, you couldn't know, whether I am going to take a month off from the challenge. I might consider doing so, if someone offers to take over for that month. You see!?
On with the show then and don't take me wrong on this one, it isn't my fault, it's just a coincidence, just a matter of ... eh ... eh ... whatever, we are going to ...

Well, officially we can say Republic o Turkey. So we are having less troubles with mix-ups. Nevertheless, just to make sure, you are not suppose to do turkey dishes, but Turkish dishes. Just that you don't get any ideas!
Argh, yes, you might need some ideas for what you might been cooking. For that a few keywords: bulgur, peynir, socuk, tahin, yufka and pekmez. I am not 100% sure, but we might see he one or the other again throughout the month.
So far, I have tried a few tiny things Turkish on my blog already. Sheep cheese, beyaz peynir, was involved there. I attempted Turkish pizza, called lahmacun.

The other thing was peynirli börek, pastry with sheep cheese filling that was. It looked a bit like this ... eh ... it looked exactly like this ...

Along that line I might have beyaz peynir ezmesi this month. Have you figured out by now what about this could be? Have a guess.

Anyway, I have a Turkish cookbook. In fact that was the second cookbook I ever bought. It came a little later then my Mexican cookbook and it still looks a lot better. So it's about time I use it a bit more. If I get the chance I might even try hünkar begendi, the sultan was delighted. I only hope that dish, involving lamb and aubergines, will delight me as well then.
However, in case you are more on the sweet side (now I definitely hope you don't get me wrong) you might try dilber dudagi ... ahem ... the lips of a beautiful woman. Now I could tell you a story along that line, but I rather not. I don't know how to put it the easy way. 
Still, the sweet dishes are more on the ... something ... side. Some more examples: women's navel or vezier finger.
However, you could stay on the save side and present us some Turkish delight or some baklava.
As always, the options  are endless. Do some research, thinking and the like and ...

... write up a lovely post keeping in mind the following ...
  1. Link to my blog and this very challenge in your post.
  2. Use the "Bloggers Around the World" badge (hm, nobody told me there was a spelling error the last few times ... naughty).
  3. Use either an old post ... having tried something magnificently yumlicious ... and Turkish.
  4. You can enter up to  ... think ... three posts along that theme.
  5. Have as much fun as you can have legally and reasonably ...
Did I forget anything. For sure I will remember when it is too late, but maybe then I will never know. So, get ready and cook ...


  1. I love Turkish food so this should be a good month for me!

    1. That sounds good to me. I wonder, what everyone will come up with.

  2. Don't think I know much about Turkish food, will have to research.

    1. That's what is also about, to try out something new.
