    I’d like to know where I can purchase the dolma machine.Do you sell it or know where it’s purchased at?

    Can you please tell me where we can purchase these dolma machines?

    I just got back from a wonderful 34 day trip all around Turkey. Fantastic! What I’m really craving is the stuffed eggplant dish, the Imam Fainted. Can you help me find it? I saw a picture of it on your blog, but no recipe. Do you know it by another name, that’s what it was called in Van in the far east of Turkey.

    I recently visited Turkey (wonderful tour) and had a dish of spiced yogurt (wonderful Yogurt!) served over Turkish bread. I believe it was called Tirit. Do you have a recipe for that.
    Enjoyed your country and the food.

    Laura, Shirley – I do not sell the dolma machine. Unfortunately, it is only sold on the streets near Grand Bazaar.

    Pat – I haven’t posted a recipe for İmam Fainted yet, but you can find a very similar recipe (prepared with minced meat) here.

    Mary Jo – Tirit is actually a meat dish. The yogurt dish you mentioned may be strained yoghurt mixed with various spices (most probably stale bread crumbs, garlic, mint). Am I close?

    In what book would I find the Lemon and Raspberry Birthday cake recipe?

    Jo Ann Carter – It is from Dorie Greenspan’s “Baking: From My Home to Yours”.

    What a lovely recipe site. I’ve recently visited Turkey and loved the food – but what I especially love about your recipe index is the fusion of Turkish with western influences, which make them accessible to us out here.
    Thanks very much

    Dear Cenk,

    I was looking for a recipe for fresh pomegranite pepper jelly and came upon your site. What a wonderful site filled with delicious treats and recipes. I was in Istanbul in 2005 visiting Matti Servio who is an artist living in Istanbul. The city was amazing.
