The most beautiful Turkish dishes of our time date back to prehistoric times. The Turks, especially in Central Asia, led a nomadic life for a very long time, and from the 5th century they began to have a great agricultural culture. The Turks interacted with countries such as Iran, India and China, as they lived tribal life and established scattered states. This interaction has had its share in terms of Turkish cuisine dishes. Turkish food names contain many different words just thanks to these interactions.
When it comes to the Ottoman period, traditional Turkish recipes are considered as the beginning of our current culinary culture.
The natural part of this is that the Ottoman Empire was an empire that spanned three continents and that the communities living within these borders with different traditions exchanged more cultures than other countries.
If Turkish recipes are so much and in the foreground in these times, the biggest effect is the cultural exchanges in ancient times.
Looking at the Ottoman period, under the name of the Turkish food menu:
Milk Aş (Rice Pudding)
Various Sorbets And Desserts
such as meals.
This style of Turkish-style dishes emerged with the important recipes of foreign cooks during the Ottoman period.
After mentioning most of the sweets, confectionery and drinks in Ottoman cuisine, Friedrich Unger, the Greek royal chef in the Ottoman period, gives the above-mentioned dishes at the end of his book. The author presents these dishes under the name of “Turkish food list”.
These dishes are the most famous dishes of that time. At the same time, such dishes can be shown as forgotten Turkish dishes.
