Turkey is blessed with a very wide variety of fresh produce. The climatic and geographical differences within the country also heavily influence regional cooking, from extreme heat in the south-east where the food tends to be more spicy and meat dishes such as kebabs are common, to temperate fertile zones to the west where seafood and olive oil are frequently used ingredients. Then there is the eastern region with its long cold winters where dairy produce, honey, cereals and meat are popular.

Below is a collection of Turkish recipes for you to try. We hope you enjoy them. Donít forget to take a look at the Turkish Main page which gives lots of information about Turkish food, a Turkish Speciality Dish and a Turkish Featured Ingredient sections.
