Sunday is always one of my favorite days to cook, as I can relax and make it a real event. This Sunday was no different, and I made a Turkish feast. Here was the menu:
Beef Kebabs with Pistachio and Tahini Sauce
Tomatoes with Pomegranate Seeds and Sumac
Prawns with Blood Orange and Cilantro
Cardamom Ice Cream from Carmela’s in Pasadena
It was quite the feast and showed me once again how amazing and varied the food from the east can be. The flavors were unique, well matched and tasted great. Everything had a freshness and lightness that really satisfied without being heavy. Suffice to say, it was a great meal.
As I’ve said before, there is a well of recipes and tastes to be had from the foods of Lebanon, Turkey, Morocco, Persia and Greece. The more I discover, the more I want to expand my knowledge.
