Product Description

Review

"Ozcan claims Turkish cuisine is one of the greatest in the world…[his recipes] manage to be fairly persuasive."—New York Times


"Ozcan Ozan's Sultan's Kitchen deliciously captures the flavors of Turkish cooking traditions…Professionals and home cooks alike will find lots of savory ideas within the pages of this book to expand their repertoire of prized Mediterranean recipes."—Greg Drescher, Director of Education, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone

About the Author

Chef Ozcan Ozan grew up in Izmir, Turkey, and has been cooking for nearly thirty years. Before coming to Boston he cooked professionally in Europe and Turkey, learning his craft in the traditional European fashion of working at each kitchen position until he became executive chef. He attended the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris. He is a member of the James Beard Association and cooked for the 1995 James Beard Awards dinner. His restaurant, Sultan's Kitchen, has been profiled in the Boston Phoenix as well as the Boston Globe, and was selected as the Best Middle Eastern Restaurant in Boston for 1997 by Boston Magazine. Zagat Restaurant Survey has ranked Sultan's Kitchen as Boston's Best Middle Eastern Restaurant for four years. Ozcan has appeared on TV and radio programs here and abroad. He lives north of Boston with his wife and two sons.

Photographer Carl Tremblay is well known for his knack of bringing out the beauty in food and food-related objects. He created the photographs for The Olives Table (1997), and his work regularly appears in Boston Magazine as well as Cook's Illustrated, Inc. Magazine, and Yankee magazine.

Format: Hardcover
Most Turkish cookbooks written in English are very hard to understand since translating anything from Turkish to English can be quite a task. Most of the recipes in this book are very easy to understand and follow through. There are some recipes here that may be difficult to make (Su Boregi, Manti to name a couple) but thats because they are hard to make regardless of what language you try explain the recipe! The ingredients shouldn't be too hard to find and the taste you achieve by following these recipes is 100% authentic. You dont have to be in Istanbul to eat like the sultans anymore! Excellent for those homesick!

Format: Paperback
I love Turkish food, and with this book I have been able to replicate some of my favorite restaurant dishes, as well as make new discoveries. The meze (Turkish appetizer) recipes are uniformly terrific-- the spicy pureed feta and spicy tomato recipes alone justify the price of the book. They have become standards in our house and are requested by guests time and time again. For the most part, the dishes are easy to make, although a few are labor intensive. Instructions are clear. The pictures make one's mouth water. The only reason I did not give this book 5 stars is that I most enjoy cookbooks that both have good recipes and are fun to read. There is not much to read in this book other than the recipes.

I'm Turkish and own several cookbooks on Turkish cuisine written in Turkish. Yet I find myself referring to this book quite often. It covers most of the standards and has interesting local dishes. I'd definitely recommend it to foreigners who want to be cooking "the real thing". However, there are some dishes which to me seem either made up, relatively unknown or heavily interpreted by Mr. Ozan. For example, the wedding soup does not have so many vegetables in it; in fact it has none.

I have lived in Turkey and enjoyed the food perhaps too much. Also my hobby is collecting Turkish cookbooks and cooking Turkish food. This book is at the top of my list. Every recipe I've tried has been perfection. Not due to my cooking skills but because of the quality of the recipe. Don't hesitate to buy this book.

This is the BEST cookbook! I am NOT an experienced cook, but I was even able to make the BREAD (from scratch!) for the meat filled pastry (Katmer with Kiymali filling)! I had no trouble understanding the instructions or finding the ingredients (they were ALL available at my local grocery!)! Another great thing about it is the photographs! There are a LOT! (If it looks good, then you want to cook it, right?) I have cooked my way through half the recipes and loved them all! This book made me a much more confident cook! Oh, I almost forgot to say, everything tastes GREAT! I don't even have to go to a Turkish restaurant anymore!

I have this cookbook, and cook from it at least once a week. The recipes are well thought out and always tasty. Recently, I adopted a mediterranean diet, and found that I could eat foods I really liked, and still be healthy. However, lunch was always a problem. I'm lucky enough to work around the corner from the restaurant, Sultan's Kitchen, where Ozcan cooks. This is where the recipes come from. They are healthy, they are tasty and they are very well tested. I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to adopt a healthy diet or looking for turkish recipes.

I used to live in Boston and regularly dine at the Sultan's Kitchen. It is the only Turkish restaurant I've visited in the US that immediately transport's me to my Hala's kitchen in Istanbul. I'm thrilled to have this book available to me. It is one way for me to stay connected to family so far away. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Turkish food is delicious and The Sultan's Kitchen makes the best.
