Drawing on Sevtap's rich heritage, from her father's charmed boyhood in Ankara, Turkey, to her own immigration to Australia, Turkish Fire brings to life the everyday verve and passion for food that the poeple of her homeland possess. With a focus on authentic street food and barbeque, Turkish Fire transports the reader to the bustling metropolis of Ankara and it's surrounds.
Herbs, spice, fresh produce and good company: these are the foundation of the perfect Turkish meal. With recipes for morning, noon and night, as well as salads, sides and sweets, Sevtap will show the reader how to eat their way through the day, Turkish-style.
Born in Turkey, Sevtap Yuce loved food so much that she started cooking when she was eight years old. As an adult, she trained in the kitchen with international cookbook and television personality Bill Granger at his iconic cafe Bills. Looking for a quieter life, Sevtap opened her own cafe, The Beechwood Cafe, which quickly became a must-visit venue for foodies. This is Sevtap s third book."
