Yesterday was the day of the marvelous Turkish feast. Alas, I have no photos to share with you, as I had - while doing my hostess duties - completely forgot to get the designated photographer to do his duty!
Anyway, the food was ate, wine was drunk, Christmas crackers popped and crowns crowned in glorious rainbow colours. What did I cook? An array of mezze - ezme, hummus, cacik, fasulye piyazi, roasted patlican salatasi - served with pita wedges; as well as kuru koftes and ispanakli peynirli borek for mains. For dessert there was Christmas cake and biscuits.
There are no photos of food or recipes today, just some photos of the day-after-the-party and the Christmas decorations at home.
