Poached, scrambled, boiled, fried…the list is endless. There’s little doubt that eggs lie at the heart of many a cooks repertoire. Now’s your chance to take them to new frontiers. With a drizzle of hot, chilli butter, Turkish poached eggs give humble yolks a new lease of life and add a spice infused-twist straight from the bazaars of Istanbul. After all, with the flavours of both Asia and Europe at its doorstep, Turkish cooking has never been known to do things by halves – so why should you?
Real snacks never belonged in a packet. Deep down, we all know that nothing delicious comes straight from the shop. Proper treats require a little bit of extra flair – a fact that the Turkish have known for generations. Take these courgette and feta fritters. Fried until golden and generously topped with a refreshing mint dip, these simple little bites are easy to make, but impossible to share. A little effort really does go a long way.
