    This is so warming and delicious, perfect for colder months and a great pick me up! Consider it the Turkish version of a Jewish chicken soup! Serve with a tablespoon of thick yoghurt drizzled over the top and some black pepper. Enjoy as a starter or on its own with lots of crusty bread.

    This moist Turkish cake is packed full of orangy goodness and is gluten-free. Whole oranges are simmered until tender, blitzed with eggs, sugar, lemon juice, baking powder and ground almonds, before being baked to perfection.

    Poached eggs in tomato sauce - southern Italian style. An easy and nutritious meal in the absence of meat. The dish links diverse Mediterranean countries, as similar to north African and Israeli shakshuka and Turkish menemen.

    A creamy, spicy and smooth lentil soup perfect for winter. Serve with hot bread, black olives and lemon. This is the traditional way. I prefer to serve it with garlic bread.

    This is a brilliant vegetarian main course or a great side dish to meat dishes. It originates from Aegean region in Turkey. Also could be served cold as a meze starter.

    This delicious flat bread hails from Turkey. Bazlama is a simple village bread that I learnt in Turkey, where it is cooked in an outdoor oven. In your home it can be made with ease using a heavy cast iron pan on the hob. Best served warm.
