I have carried cheese in hand luggage before but i am not sure that you will get away with tins, could be used as a weapon!

Re: what food can you take in hand luggage

We have brought back from the UK............tins Fray Bentos, corned beef, spam, tinned ham, condensed milk, etc,etc. We have never been stopped here at Antalya customs in the 10years we have lived here, and we have been back and forth to UK so many times I cannot remember.
Plus of course bacon.
Having said all that, the last time we got back to Antalya from UK we were waiting more than 1 hour for our own cases on the carusel after everyone else had got theirs and ours was with the last 3 cases. When we got it it looked like it had been opened, presumably by customs I suppose but nothing missing.

Re: what food can you take in hand luggage

Sorry if I offend you butt007, but apart from very occasionally buying bacon, there is no way that I would buy anything else you mention, to eat in England, let alone transporting it to Turkey.
Memories of school dinners!
So much lovely fresh produce here in Turkey.
A friend once asked me to take her a tin of ham to Spain. Why, when there is such lovely ham to buy there?
Each to their own I suppose.

If you want a good strong Cheddar - type cheese you can get Tulum peynir in all supermarkets. It's just as good. Why not go to a cheese counter in the local market and try something different? The stallholders will be delighted to give you samples, get out there and do something new for a change!
How long are you staying? Can't you live without corned beef for a month?
Shame on you!!!!!

Enjoy your break, away from British food.

I can live without corned beef forever, aptly named corned dog in my family.

Re: what food can you take in hand luggage

I have not found a Turkish cheese that make good cheese on toast yet. Certainly not Tulum, possibly Eski kaşar, but it is not as good as cheddar. Each to their own.
