Another dish for Eurovision party, this time representing Turkey with the cunningly titled Turkish Cooking by Irfan Orga (Andre Deutsch, 1958).
This dish was started some time after we’d commencing cooking and the kitchen was in disarray and I was flapping slightly, so it was a joint effort between Zakia and Elly and I don’t think I did a lot really apart from prepare the filling. We used Cheshire cheese, rather than proper white cheese, partly because of the limitations of Sainsbury’s online range and partly because I’m not sure what white cheese is. I figured I’d be able to get some at TFC but hadn’t actually got round to going there.
As far as I could tell the main issue was that I do not have a crescent moon pastry cutter and so these were shaped by hand (This did look kind of tricky. Sorry).
