If you are invited to a Turkish home for dinner, you might see a spread like this:
Fish, lamb, or chicken. In this case i was Çinekop fish from the Marmara sea, Barbunya (a kind of beans), fava beans, salad, goat cheese, olives, Şakşuka (fried aubergine and potatos, green pepper, garlic and tomato sauce, red pepper with vinegar and garlic, fried cauliflour, Kısır (bulgar salad with ming, parsley, onion and other herbs), bread spreads such as haydarı (yoghurt with mint), and ground, spicy tomatos.
And of course, rakı, Turkey's national alcoholic drink, which turns white when mixed with water. It is also called "lion's milk!).
This delicious dinner was thanks to Arzu, who lives in Lara, Antalya.
