Description
Many ancient civilizations passed through what is now Turkey, shaping and dramatically enhancing its cuisine. In turn, Turkish cuisine has influenced how people cook in far-flung, unimaginable corners of the globe. For example, Turkey is to thank for fermenting milk and creating yogurt, a modern-day breakfast staple. This is just one of the hundreds of ingredients and culinary techniques that were born in the lands of Anatolia and that today form part of world cuisine.
