I think Christmas dinner might be the most boring meal all year for some reason though it was my first year cooking it and nothing burnt but I did not find it very satisfying , perhaps its because I am not a huge fan of roast dinners. however Christmas Breakfast and Evening Meal and lots of fantastic leftovers to be posted later.

Christmas Breakfast

Christmas Presents in Bed

Toasted Bagels with cream cheese smoked salmon with plenty of black pepper and a squeeze of lemon with , cava ( well breakfast was about 11am so not too decadent ) and some orange juice for the vitamins.

Our evening meal on Christmas Day was lovely too a spiced ham with the leftover turkey tonnes of chutneys and some spiced red cabbage.

Happy Holidays In Turkey – Something Fishy

Its the African Queen?

Our last day before a scary 2am flight we had our final tour of the lovely town we had been staying in Dalyan ,situted on a river delta where they filmed The African Queen I swimming in sea lake and river so I think I was beggining to develop gills

Chicken Fish
On the last day we had a extra trip out to the beach the lunch break we had what the guide said was Chicken Fish … with tiny bones you could eat it might take me a while to identify it .

After the beach we ate blue crab caught by fisherman just a the end of the river delat who hang all day on tiny boats . The crab is boiled in a large pot with water, olive oil and paprika then left on a BBQ to stay warm you don’t get a lot of meat but the boat was contented with a gentle cracking of shells.

Happy Holidays In Turkey – Slow Baked

Slow Baked Lamb

If the kebab is the quick cook food then it is perfect that the country should also have some delicious slow cooked dishes.

Turkish Casserole Baked in Terracota PotsTurkish Casserole

One restaurant even cooked then in large terracota clay pots broken open at the table , bit overly dramatic if you ask me , choices of fish , lamb beef even octopus.

Cinnamon Beef Casserole

My favorites were a beef stew that just melted in your mouth in a restaurant run by on man and his mum where they let you sample the mezes first and then have more of your favourites. The stew was flavored with chilli and cinnamon served with bulgar wheat

Most restaurants asked you to book a slow roast lamb the day before and it would be well worth it , in case of the lamb on the top of this post was roasted and then grilled slightly giving a combination of melt in th mouth dissolving and cripsy caramelisation

Happy Holidays in Turkey – Kebab anyone ?

When is a kebab not a kebab?

Anatolian Kebab

I never knew before there were so many different types of kebabs but a week in Turkey is highly educational , from the first day a delicious cast iron pot served an Anatolian Kebab , lamb meat which had been kebabed and grilled was then baked with spices , chilli tomato aubergine , haloumi cheese and lashing of olive oil took my breath away

Snack Kebab

Even a snack kebab that cost less than a pound was made with warm fresh flat bread , parsley and tomato the meat itself spicey but not greasy like kebab meet in this country
Kebabs were sometimes made with minced lamb but seasoned to perfection, even BBQ finger licking good from the back of a boat

Flaming Kebab

The final kebab blowout was the last night but one with the Okyanus Mixed Grill served with flaming trumpets of foil

This was my Sunday service ….. 6 hours in the woods……smiley smiley happy Beck
