Food

When you travel to Turkey don’t forget to sample the local cuisine. Mouth-watering smells drift across the pottery-strewn hills at meal-times and you could find yourself enjoying a leisurely dinner of a variety of world-famous kebabs, fresh fish grilled on a barbecue or ‘pilav’: a traditional rice dish that is said to be un-cookable outside of Turkey. And if you’re feeling brave, you could try a glass of the local anise-based ‘lion’s drink’ – or Raki, as we know it.
