Best of Turkish Cooking Cookbook Giveaway – CLOSED

Turkish cuisine is one of my absolute favorites in the whole wide world- and I’ve not yet been to Turkey, just experienced it from some of the best Turkish home cooks right here in the USA. It is so healthy, light, flavorful and deeply resonate of history, culture and religion. During the time of the Ottoman Empire the Caliph’s chefs were dedicate to the culinary arts and perfecting the cuisine we know today generally as Turkish. To explore all that is Turkish cuisine would take quite a long time, but just looking at the geographic location of Turkey being smack dab in the middle of the historic Silk Road and having Istanbul as a great international city that unites east with west, one can just imagine the variety of regional recipes street vendors, markets and high end restaurants combined all serve on a daily basis. 

Best of Turkish Cuisine, published by Tughra Books, offers recipes in the categories soups, salads, vegetable dishes, olive oil dishes, rice and grains, fish dishes, meat dishes, pastries and desserts. I’m giving away a copy of the book to one randomly-selected winner.

  1. Assalamu alaikum!
    I’ve just recently begun to cook….I come from a south Asian background, and I am looking to expand my culinary abilities.
    Alhumdulillah I’ve been successful in making fusion Italian, western, and middle eastern cuisine, and now I’m looking to try turkish food as there aren’t many turkish restaurants near me!
    My halal kitchen has been a wonderful help when UT comes to cooking…..all the tips and tricks helps me improve my cooking immensely!

  2. Anyone and everyone I’ve known who has visited Turkey has raved about 3 things: the architecture, the tea, and the kebabs! And though I’d love to go take that journey one day, I’d definitely settle on trying some of the yumminess from my kitchen here at home.

  3. My husband and I love Turkish food;spent our honeymoon in Turkey too. Would love to learn a few of our favorite recipes authentic style!

  4. I had a wonderful Turkish neighbor once…we used to always share dishes with each other on occasions…I never got a chance to write down her recipes …this book would be a great start to cooking some amazing Turkish delicacies!:)

  5. Turkish food reminds me of my Turkish grandmother, God bless her. It would be so nice to cook Turkish delicacies they way she does!

  6. Growing up, my mom had a much older friend who is Turkish. Her meals were amazing and she used to make us these small, delicious meat pies. I never knew what anything was called, but I’d like to learn and try my hand at it!

  7. Salaam all,
    I belong to Asian country and I have recently settled down in Turkey after my marriage in a Turkish family. Though I have read a comment that may be this book is going to be delivered only in US… But still I hope I really need it the max to learn and boost my cooking skills, so to make my husband happy and surprised.

  8. I have only had a few dishes of Turkish food while dinning out. Would love a good recipe book to learn to make these tasty dishes at home.

  9. My hubby and I used to frequent a Turkish restaurant when we lived in Long Island, NY. Since moving to AL, we miss the Turkish food and restaurant. I’d love to be able to recreate some of the yummy dishes we’d enjoy there.

  10. My husband loves Turkish food! Would love to try making some authentic dishes myself! Thanks so much for the offer!

  11. Assalamu Alikum, Turkey is beautiful MashaAllah and aside from their wonderful food, which I would love to make, the beauty is apparent there in the people’s attitude, the buildings, the streets, and of course the history and architecture. I pray you get a chance to go there soon inshallah. It’s nice to go somewhere and feel like you are part of that place and history even though it’s the first time you step foot there. Btw, is there a way to make really good “Turkish pizza” without the brick oven?

  12. Love Turkish food. I would love to learn how to make bulgur and their fresh home made dinner rolls stuffed with cheese

  13. In 1998, my family went on a cruise that began in Istanbul and ended in Rome. I will never forget my visit to Turkey. Waking up to hear the prayer call, ten years before reverting to islam, and finding it so beautiful. Seeing the Blue Mosque and eating a Turkish lamb dish. So delicious!

  14. Turkey has been a fascination for me for a very long time. I love Hagia Sophia and all the history that accompanies this beautiful city and culture. i would love to be able to cook my own Turkish dishes at home for my family.

  15. Masha’Allah like you I’m a huge, no HUGE, Turkish cuisine fan (okay I’m a little obsessed) but have not yet been to Turkey. I say yet. I look forward to the Turkish festival in Chicago each year! I’m dying to learn to authentic recipes to make at home for my family.

  16. I was invited to a Turkish friend’s house for dinner and the food was delicious. I would love to learn how to cook Turkish food.

  17. I have a very dear friend who is from Turkey. I would love to surprise my friend with Turkish dishes and give a taste of home away from home.

  18. I cook Turkish Food and I like to teach my daughter how to cook Turkish Food. To own the book will be easier to teach her. Also will motivate my young daughter.

  19. The best Turkish food I ever had was at a small restaurant in Nashua NH called seven hills. It’s been many years now since the restaurant shut down but their Adana kabab was the best!

  20. I try to try out new recipes all the time. Would definitely like it if this cook book has a variety of kabob recipes since kabobs are so versatile. You can have them with salad or rice and even pack them in a tortilla for kids lunches.

  21. Assalamu alaikum! I am intrigued by Turkish culture and cuisine. I would love to learn how to cook food from Turkey!

  22. I would love to learn to cook some Turkish meals! This looks like it would be an awesome addition to my kitchen cooking rotation!
