Re: Article about Ottoman restaurant

There is misgiving in article. It impies that Ottoman cousine is much more richer than traditional Turkish cousine. True, Ottoman was empire with different cultures including Turkic, Greek, Arab, Balkans and even some Persian due to former Selcuk empire and dishes of these cultures had entered Ottoman kitchen. But, they were picked, only some of dishes from every cultures entered Ottoman kitchen. Otherwise, it could be many more than 400 recipes.. Only in Turkey, there are more than 2200 recipes, only in GaziAntep cousine, I guess, there are about 200-300 recipes, Elazig, Konya, Hatay, Bursa, etc follow Antep.

Re: Article about Ottoman restaurant

An interesting article Firebrand
Ottoman food is a mixture of the food eaten in the places the Ottomans conquered.
.if you have ever been to the kitchens in Topkapı and read about the decadent lifestyle they followed where they had chefs from all over the Ottoman Empire

the article in this link is also interesting
..:: REPUBLIC OF TURKEY MINISTRY OF CULTURE AND TOURISM ::..

The food in Hatay is a mix of Arabic Kurdish and Turkish food too...and its worth visiting the area for the food alone. Much better than what is now being termed as Ottoman Cuisine

There is a resurgence in all things Ottoman at the moment..with the ruling party heading the fanfare.
