Turkey is the only country in the world situated in two different continents: Asia and Europe. It is therefore really a country where East meets West. Turkey's geographical location made it a natural route for traders, travelers and migrants who all influenced Turkish cuisine. For instance certain Turkish habits such as using sweet spices, fruit and nuts with meats comes from North African cooking and because the Turkish Sultans had complete control over The Spice Road many spices and
seasonings were added to flavour traditional dishes. It's remarkable that Turkish restaurants are not that widespread in the world as Greek ones, although the Turkish cuisine is at least as interesting. Tonight you can test if that is true.
