TURKISH FOOD: Gulet Cuisine


Turkish Cuisine-Turkish breakfast Turkish food is freshly prepared and beautifully presented by the chefs of our gulets. Turkish recipes are a fascinating mixture of Asian and Mediterranean cooking with Persian influences. Meals are most delicious and authentic making dining aboard an experience to equal or even top the best restaurants ashore. Dining with a view in the shade of a canopy aboard our gulets in secluded coves or in front of picturesque fishing villages make every meal a real feast for all senses.

Turkish Cuisine DinnerAfter an early morning coffee or tea for early birds, a day aboard starts with a rich Turkish breakfast consisting of slices of cucumber and tomato, assorted cheeses and sausages, a variety of egg dishes, green and black olives, honey, jam, butter and bread. Additionally there are cereals, yogurt and fresh fruit. The traditional breakfast drink is black Turkish tea but freshly brewed filter coffee, milk and herbal teas are served as well.

Light dishes of traditional Turkish cuisine, prepared with fresh local vegetables and olive oil are served for lunch: Fresh green beans, peppers stuffed with savoury rice, okras with tomatoes, pinto beans, aubergines stuffed with vegetables or minced meat, casseroles or boreks (Turkish pastry) accompanied by refreshing yogurts with mint and garlic, savoury pilavs, crispy salads and fresh fruit.
Even if you are not hungry in the afternoon, cakes, pies, pastries and cookies that are served at tea time are simply irresistible.
