Great thread, we have been looking for a recipe book for ages too so will be interested to see if one is available. And also agree the fruit is brill, I love the litle green sour appley things which we were told were called Erics, we eat them raw but have been wondering if they can be cooked in any way. Molly x

Try to get hold of Bodrum resident Angie Mtchell's Secrets of the Turkish Kitchen, good basic true Turkish dishes which she tried and tested down to to the last teaspoon ( I was one of the happy guinea pigs! ), search on Google and there are several Turkish sites that sell it as well as Amazon.
