    Book Description
    From Booklist
    Although contemporary Turkey's cooking has found welcome in many U.S. cities, few are familiar with its culinary ancestor, the imperial table of the Ottomans. Sarah Woodward has compiled recipes from that era and has updated them just enough to make the dishes reproducible in modern kitchens. The Ottoman Kitchen, as Woodward reconstructs it, emphasizes quick cooking and commonly available ingredients. Recipes abound with fresh pomegranates, nuts, yogurt, cheeses, parsley, and mint. Only a few ingredients, such as pomegranate molasses, demand special trips to Middle Eastern markets. When meat is used, it's usually lamb, but many recipes call for chicken or other poultry.

    Product Description:
    One of the earliest exponents of fusion cooking, the Ottomans elaborated and refined the culinary traditions of the entire Eastern Mediterranean region to create one of the world's greatest, and most eclectic, cuisines. The Ottoman Kitchen explores the culinary traditions of the region, the vast Ottoman Empire, which at the height of its glory spread East-West from Baghdad to Tripoli and North-South from Budapest to Cairo, and offers a collection of practical recipes for up-to-date versions of classic dishes. Interwoven with illuminating tales of history and culture, over 100 photographs are featured-stunning recipe pictures and evocative location shots of modern-day life.
