Limonlu Yumuşak KurabiyeTurkish Shortbread

Soft, zesty and morish. These lemony biscuits use cheese curd to producing a soft crumbly treat perfect alongside Turkish tea and great for little ones too.

Aşure - Noah's Pudding A sweet, grain and pulse based desert

A rich, comforting porridge-like desert full of a variety of beans and pulses with tones of Mahlep, cinnamon and cloves and a zesty kick brought together in (an optional) saffron-infused milk. The traditional dessert does require a little preparation in advance and some tender care during the making but is well worth the effort. Often made in bulk and shared and exchanged with neighbours and friends.

Exploring The Turkish Kitchen; Affiliate linking & recommendations.


I hope you are enjoying my website, blog and social media accounts?


My aim is for you to join me on my food journey either by simply reading through or even better - in the kitchen. For this, you'll find alongside my blog articles a collection of recipes and how to guides. 

These recipes have been lovingly passed or taught to me by my Turkish family and friends, discovered and adapted by myself and from popular and unknown cookbooks. 

Recipes from those cookbooks are tagged as 'Cooking the books' (You can see them all here), some of those recipes and articles/posts around them may come with an affiliate link for the book I'm using.

Others may come with a link for a product that I genuinely love and recommend.

These links should you wish to use them, take you to the usual Amazon site to purchase the book or product at exactly the same cost and service but uses a unique code to identify me as an 'Amazon Associates Participant'. This then provides me with a little commission from Amazon - not much, just enough to keep me in Turkish coffee which goes into fueling my writing after putting my little one to bed. This blog is a hobby for me - one that keeps me sane (actually that might be the coffee!) and so I assure you I'll only ever offer you links for products I have used, recommend or have a connected experience too. 

Should you see an item you want to buy you can, therefore, support me by clicking that link and purchase as normal (the link to me stays active for 24 hours so don't forget to pop back if you wish to buy it at a later date). 


Thank you for taking the time to read my disclosure - to you I raise my coffee cup.
