“Turkish cuisine”, which is among the most important cuisines of the world, is one of the important riches of our multi-layered cultural heritage, reflecting the geography in which it has come to life in a colorful way. Turkish cuisine, the roots of which go back to the plain food culture of the Central Asian Turks in its historical development process, brought about today’s Turkish food culture by combining the Central Asian nomadic people’s use of meat and fermented dairy products, grains of Mesopotamia, fruits and vegetables of the Mediterranean and the spices of South Asia. In this respect, Turkish cuisine is one of the oldest and richest cuisines among the cuisines of Mediterranean countries.
