Turkish Food delights

 
So we meet again.
Welcome to dinner at our house.
Last nights dishes were delicious.
Everyone is really stepping up their game. All the recipe links have been included in the recipe names.

Mr T&T joined in the challenge with gusto and I really thought I would have to put myself out of the voting since the dessert was Turkish delight inspired ( my favourite).

Beef kofta with saffron yoghurt

The gorgeous B1 , our eldest made these. The accompanying saffron yoghurt went well with these .

Turkish Potatoes & Chickpeas

Mr T & T enjoys getting in the kitchen when he is home and what better than to cook together.
The spices in a separate portion of this dish were omitted for Miss Moo (2). This dish is fairly easy to prepare with the main difficulty being locating Baharat (Middle Eastern spice mix)

We struggled to find Baharat in any shops for this recipe where we live so decided to make our own using a recipe from Taste.com  (link in the title text)

Lamb shanks are always a favourite dish and there were none of these left over.

Turkish bread

There are some fantastic recipes out there for Turkish bread but for this weeks bring and share we decided to buy ours.

One of our favourite breads is Turkish bread and we have fond memories of eating this with Dukkah purchased from the historical town of  New Norcia . So although Dukkah originates from Egypt we decided that it would almost be a crime not to eat Mr T & Ts Turkish Pide (bread ) without Dukkah and olive oil.

Made by Miss Teen . The changes made to this desert were added crushed Rasberrries throughout the cream on the top layer.

Overall dish ratings

We decided to tally our ratings this week to decide on an overall winner.
The three chefs hats went to Miss Teen who made the delicious desert, she will get to choose which country our food theme should be based on for next week and she has chosen one of our family favourites ; Chinese food.
Her dad and I threw in a free movie pass for winning.

Anyone who read last weeks bring and share will know that I mentioned our son Mr Wings (20) liking watching the Iron Chef  on TV when younger . Iron Chef Australian defender maybe ??
