Other tempting dishes include the Ilgin Beef Kofta (pepper and parsley spiked beef from the Central Anatolian region) or his Ottoman-inspired Stuffed Pepper Dolma. With chapters on Breakfast, Meze, Pide and Kofta, Kebabs, Salads, Meat,Seafood, Vegetables and Desserts and Drinks, it is crammed full of exciting flavours and inspiring ideas.
