Best Egg Recipes: From the Ottomans to the Contemporary Turkish Cuisine (Paperback)
In this cookbook, award-winning chef/author Omur Akkor presents a wide variety of nearly forgotten traditional Turkish egg recipes--which he unearthed by combing through old Turkish cookbooks and traveling all over the country--as well as delicious modern recipes based on eggs. Each recipe is prefaced by its brief history, includes such healthy ingredients as vegetables, has easy-to-follow instructions, and is accompanied by beautiful and colorful photographs. In addition, Akkor provides a fascinating glimpse into the history, culture, and traditions of Turkish cuisine.
