Tastes from the Palace Kitchens of Istanbul

Lecture no. 12 from the course: The Everyday Gourmet: The Joy of Mediterranean Cooking

Tastes from the Palace Kitchens of Istanbul

Taught by Professor Bill Briwa | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Food & Wine Courses

Gain insight into the nation’s culinary influences, then watch as Chef Briwa creates a hot yogurt soup—which uses simple ingredients but a somewhat complex technique—rice-stuffed vegetables, hunkar begendi (a lamb dish whose name means “the sultan’s delight”), and a dessert of poached apricots with yogurt and pistachios.
