simple yet delicious Turkish Cuisine

Our Turkish cuisine is simple yet delicious, our chefs use a handful of the best, locally sourced ingredients and craft authentic Turkish dishes perfect to enjoy with friends and family in our twist on the chef’s table, our Butler’s Pantry.

Arrive to a selection of freshly baked flatbreads, oils, breads, lavosh and queen olives and caper berries to give you a taste of the Mediterranean before diving into your chosen dishes.

You’ll get to choose from a range of mezzes, mains and desserts, below are a few of the tasty options available:

Mezze

Lahmacun is a spiced lamb flatbread that is rich in flavour and bold in taste.

A simple yet flavoursome favourite is chicken wings with cumin, lemon and garlic. The chicken wings are marinated and then cooked in our wood-fired oven to intensify the taste.

Baba ganoush, pronounced baw-baw ga-noosh, is a creamy, smoky dip popular throughout the Middle East. Our chefs create this dish using garlic, tahini and lemon. Enjoy this dip with toasted pita bread.

 

Mains

Turkish lamb pilau is a scrumptious one pot dish of rice flavoured with cinnamon, mint and plenty of tender lamb.

Imam bayildi is simply aubergine stuffed with fried onions, tomato, chilli and parsley, served with lamb chops.

Mücver is a traditional summer dish in Turkey and you’ll find it on every dinner table throughout the season.

Squash with chilli yoghurt and coriander sauce is a dish that celebrates two of the superb ingredients that Turkey introduced to the world: yoghurt and chilli. This dish is a tasty vegetarian option but also perfect for accompanying all meat dishes.

 

Dessert

Rose cream and raspberry jellies offer a fragrant and light finish to an entertaining menu, with all the flavours of Turkish delight – Mmm!

Cezerye is a semi-gelatinous traditional Turkish confectionery made from caramelised carrots, shredded coconut and roasted walnuts, hazelnuts and pistachios.

Roasted figs with pomegranate molasses and orange zest – These figs are simple to prepare but have a spectacular deep, rich flavour that will surprise you.

 

Wine

Turkish food is not traditionally paired with wine, however, we do have a handful of wines that complement the dishes.

If we had to choose one wine to match the array of vibrant tastes and flavours our first choice would be a rose or a well-structured white like Stellenrust Chenin Blanc from South Africa.

A savoury red from the Mediterranean to pair with both chicken and lamb is Dinastia Vivanco Rioja Crianza from Spain – This versatile red is Spain’s most well-known wine and it made from a blend of different grape varieties. It has aromas and flavours of violets and red fruits, with a hint of vanilla spice

For the dishes with sweet, lighter flavours our New World Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc is a superb match as it is simple and fresh.
