Hello this is Gül, welcome to my blog,

My blog is about Aegean culinary cultures and food traditions of the region.

Its starting point is not to forget this area’s culinary and eating habits and to practice the culinary heritage of the unique Aegean region.

Most of my recipes are the symbols of healthy Aegean eating based on Mediterranean diet, but at the same time with full of flavour.

My intention is to use organic, local and natural ingredients. Olive oil is the basic cooking oil, no margarine or heavy creams are used in the recipes.

Rich agricultural products, local seasonal fruits/vegetables and various herbs make the Aegean region’s dishes both healthy and delectable.

The fantastic starters (meze), vegetable delicacies cooked in olive oil, fish and sea food variations, meat like lamb or goat are some of the Aegean dish features.

The recipes are almost similar time to time, at the countries ( Turkey & Greece) bordering the Aegean coast and in my opinion this makes a culinary bridge between the two countries.

All writings and images on this site belongs to me.

I hope my blog will interest you…

    Merhaba Gul – I am writing a cookbook for an American publisher and I’m wondering if I could use your sourdough starter recipe and give you the proper credit. I have been traveling to Greece and Turkey for most of my life and I love the cuisine and culture of the Aegean.

    Gül Hanım,

    “Dolma” “doldurmak”tan değilde doğrudan “dol”dan gelir.

    Ayrıca, bizim radyo programlarımızsa yayınlamak için tariflerinizi okumak ister misiniz? Bilgisayarla kaydedip bize mp3 olarak gönderebilirsiniz.
