With influences from the Mediterranean, Southern Europe and the Middle East, Turkish-Cypriot food offers incredible flavour combinations unique to its region. Oklava: The Cookbook celebrates the culinary delights of this area in a way no cookbook has done before.
Oklava translates simply as 'rolling pin'. For Selin Kiazim, this word conjures up memories of her Turkish-Cypriot grandmother: a rolling pin was never far from her hands, which meant a delicious treat was imminent. The same can be said for this book. These sensational recipes will take you on a journey from home-cooked meals and summers spent in North Cyprus to an exciting interpretation of modern Turkish-Cypriot cooking in London.
Bring the Oklava experience into your home with Turkish delights such as Courgette, Feta & Mint Fritters; Veal Shish & Onion Salad Flatbread with Charred Sivri Biber Relish & Yogurt; Barbecued Sweetcorn with Sumac, Garlic, Lemon Butter & Za'atar; Dark Chocolate & Praline Katmer with Pistachios; and Turkish Bloody Mary.
