The top 5 Ottoman-inspired delicacies with a twist

ottoman

Ottoman and Turkish cuisines have left their imprint in the tastes of all of the former domains of the multi-ethnic empire. The influence and the mix-up of the local cuisines have been so deep that, for example, desserts of Turkish origin -or influence- are now considered local specialities in areas so distant like Albania and North Africa. In this post you may find gathered together five typical recipes of that kind -sweet and savoury alike- that have been brought into the contemporary culinary trends: some of them are the chocolate galaktoboureko (laz böreği), the avocado bougatsa (poğaça) and the mushroom pie with kandaifi (kadayıf).
