    Loved this blog. Who knew! I took a cooking class on Turkish food. Though we didn’t have time to make any, our teacher (a native of Turkey) provided some for us to taste. Yum yum!

      How fun! Interesting how much Turkish food is influenced by the Roman/Byzantine and Ottoman empires. What flavor was the turkish delight? I hear it comes a gazillion different ways!

    That is interesting story about how it was made!
    I am yet to taste this and after reading your post I am eager. 🙂

    Yum this candy looks delicious. When I went to Turkey I never tried any of this sadly. I will need to return and try your suggestions

    I have to say, I’m not really much of a fan of Turkish delight. My girlfriend however, very much is and i was filling her in with little factoids as I was reading this post! Certainly, it’s incredible how a food can be a kind of edible microcosm for the anthropological history of a location. Very much enjoyed

    Our kiddo is still young but we are sure soon we would also need to weave such stories to make future trips interesting and fascinating for her. From your post and the pictures seems like Turkish delight would really be a delight to taste. We would definitely give it a try whenever we make a visit to Turkey.

      It is not to everyone’s taste of course but fun to try new things!! Anything sweet is usually easy to get the kids to try!

    I have never been to Turkey. This looks great. I have been to Jordan and the culture seems to be having lot of similarities. I loved the interesting story behind the name Turkish Delight. If Churchill loved it, then it better be good!

    Turkish Delight is the worst! I’ve never ever understood how people could like the taste, but it was actually one of my mother’s favourites so I suppose it can’t be THAT bad. Despite my own personal avoidance (I get very passionate about food hahaha) of the stuff, I found the story behind its in invention super fascinating! I remember being a kid and asking my mother why it’s called Turkish delight but she didn’t know so made up some random story. Now in the future if my niece or nephews ask me, I’ll be able to tell them!

  9. I did not know any of this about Turkish delight! Now that I understand, I want to try every single flavor!! With it’s nougat like appearance, I had no idea it was comparable to a jelly bean! Very interesting!

    After reading this, I so want to have a Turkish Delight. The sweets sure look yum. I would love to have some as I love jelly beans. 🙂

    I didn’t know of Turkish Delight till I watched Chronicles of Narnia Lion Witch & Wardrobe! Since then I’ve been wanting to taste it! Thanks for this idea of what it consists of actually!
