Hello from Turkey Flavours Tour Guide

We call you Welcome to our website Flavours Tour Guide, Our goal is to promote our Turkish cuisine culture, offering forgotten and unknown flavours.
The finest Turkish food of our time, dates back to prehistoric times.
The Turks lived as nomads for a long time, especially in Central Asia, and by the 5th century they had a great agricultural culture.
Turks interacted with countries such as Iran, India and China because they led a tribal life and founded scattered states. This interaction has its share of Turkish courts. Turkish food names contain many different words only because of these interactions.
In the Ottoman era, traditional Turkish recipes are seen as the beginning of our current culinary culture. The natural part of this is that the Ottoman Empire was an empire that spread to three continents and that communities with different traditions living within those borders exchanged more cultures than other countries. If Turkish recipes are so much in the foreground and cultural exchange in antiquity is at the forefront, that is the biggest effect. This kind of Turkish dishes, created with the important recipes of foreign chefs in the Ottoman era.
Turkish food and Turkish recipes have come from the past to the present. All these recipes and dishes are part of our culture. Although Turkish food is easy to look at, it is more difficult and complex than many other cultures and countries. Turkish food and regions are very different.
For example: on the west side dishes made of plants and various herbs are common. Seafood is abundantly consumed in the Black Sea, Aegean and Marmara regions. Pastries and muesli are widely consumed in inner and eastern Anatolia. Of course, the climate and way of life also influenced the kitchen.
