Question Turkish Dinner Party Help!!

Hi Everyone

My Husband has invited our new landlord and his wife to dinner to thank him for all his help in our move and organising everything for our new home.

Only problem is I have no idea what to cook for a dinner party in Turkey. I pulled out my best roast chicken dinner today to be told that maybe it is to simple yikes

I am looking for ideas and recipes and any rights and wrongs to do hope some of you can help me out.

Raven, relax, I don't think there will be any rights or wrongs, I bet they will be absolutely delighted and grateful for the fare served to them.
I know our Turkish Caretaker and his wife exchange food with me often and they are absolutely delighted as I am with each others food.
Bet roast chicken with all the trimmings would go down a treat.

Re: Turkish Dinner Party Help!!

Try BINNURS online turkish cookbook--from what ive seen on turkish tv a turkish dinner party basicalyy consists of 4 courses soup-a pastry-meat or fish -then dessert---but perhaps you should give them some english food to try--one of my turkish neighbours loves yorkshire puds with gravy and would eat a whole bowl of trifle

Re: Turkish Dinner Party Help!!

I'd say stick to what you know what you cook best. I think trying some new turkish dish is too risky as it might not turn out right...and your landlord's wife might cook it better

Re: Turkish Dinner Party Help!!

I think they'd be looking forward to trying something different and would love roast chicken and all the trimmings and then maybe a light, easy pudding such as a fruit platter. Instead of a starter, you could do some nibbles/mezes - as a full roast dinner is very filling, I would keep both the starter and the dessert light - and go for it with the trimmings! Let us know how it goes.

Re: Turkish Dinner Party Help!!

My mate , an Indian National who has lived in India, Pakistan, 5 African states, the USA and the uk always says " i can get Asian grub any time i want, if only when we visit people they would serve up a traditional Brit dish. He says him and his family love to try loads of different stuff.

Give him your best Chicken roast. Bet they love it.

Just have an incredibly sweet pudding, backed up with fresh fruit and strong coffee.

Steve.

Re: Turkish Dinner Party Help!!

Whenever Turkish friends are coming for dinner they demand roast potatoes, whatever else I'm cooking! And my German friends also for that matter!!!

Stick to what you know - less stress that way!!!! And I'm sure they'll love it!
