Culinary Soft and Hard Limits

A recent prolonged stay for my husband in hospital here where we were both fed three meals a day got me wondering about what food, primarily Turkish, you would draw the line at?

I will try most dishes and have some "suspect" dishes yet to try.

I have eaten korkorec and found it tasty, even though it has the texture of a mouth full of rubber bands. I've had packet iskembe corbasi (tripe soup) and don't find it too painful. I don't know how I'd cope with a plate of tripe. I certainly couldn't manage more than a very small mouthful of tripe and onions in the UK. I haven't had beyin corbasi (brain soup) but would give it a go.

I would love to try a real cig kofte - with raw meat, rather than the meatless varieties they are only allowed to sell now. I like steak tartar.

I have yet to meet another person who enjoys acili salgam suyu - a sort of cordial made from, amongst other things, hot black carrot. It is beetroot coloured and it burns! A friend likened it to very salty seawater with chilli in! I love the stuff.

One definite hard limit for me however is bamya (okra). Not the taste so much as the texture which reminds me of a slime covered fur ball. I have tried it several times but just can't eat it.

Re: Culinary Soft and Hard Limits

The only thing I cn think of that I wouldnt try is the fish eyes, many Turkish friends eat them, sorry just not for me.
I will not eat any meal in any country served with broccoli, it has to be completely removed from my plate first.

Kalimari, octopus, squiddy type things make me feel sick just looking at it let alone smelling or tasting it. And ayran, liquid cat sick.....yuk.

Re: Culinary Soft and Hard Limits

We love Kokorec it is offaly nice.

Tripe or Trip Soup yuk, my husband loves Iskembe, gulp.

Cannot swallow Ayran however, it is disguised.

We love any fish, shellfish, but along with Martin (Yalimart), the eyes don't do it for me either!

Re: Culinary Soft and Hard Limits

I love ayran.

I'll eat the eyes of small fish if they are well fried and bear no resemblance to eyes!

Broccoli is one of my favourite veggies, especially good with a dollop of butter.

On the fruity front, I've just remembered I can't stand pears. Nor Russet apples - that texture thing again.

I have had brain soup. It is grey and more-or-less tasteless. You can jolly it up a bit with chilli flakes.
