Turkish Cuisine is one of the three main cuisines of the world, together with French and Chinese. Turkish cuisine, like its cultural mosaic, is very colorful and contains countless different tastes. The foundation of the cuisine is based on grains (rice and wheat) and vegetables. The simplicity of basic cooking techniques, impressive variety and the honesty of the final product – food not hidden under sauces or masked by the heavy-handed use of herbs or spices.
