The kitchens of the Topkapi palace in Istanbul invented and devised the most sumptuous feasts. From the elaborate Royal Mutfaklar recipes originated the simple cooking techniques and honest final products - food not hidden under sauces or masked by heavy-handed use of herbs or spices.
Join us in exploring some of the oldest Turkish restaurants in Brunswick’s bustling Sydney road.
We begin with exploring Brunswick’s bustling Sydney road, the epicentre of cultural Melbourne. Flavours of the Middle East are prominent here and we start by soaking up the atmosphere with a plate full of Turkish ‘meze’ and a strong cup of Tea infused with cinnamon. We try authentic flavours at some of the oldest family owned Turkish eating establishments in Melbourne.
Taste the authentic ‘Pide’ – Turkish pizza, ‘Dolma’ and ‘Pilaf’- spiced rice. To finish, the sweetness of beautifully flavoured ‘Baklava’ and ‘Muhallebi’ – traditional milk puddings with a cup of Turkish coffee.
