Don’t you hate losing track of all the blogs you follow regularly? And isn’t it time consuming to check every other day to see if anything new has been published?

To make things easier, you can subscribe to blogs you like and get notified the instant when a new post is published.

Here are two ways to subscribe to Cafe Fernando:

1 – Subscribe via a News Feed Reader

If the blogs you follow publish RSS feeds, you can keep track of them via a news feed reader. Instead of manually checking each blog, you can use this free service which compiles all the latest entries from the blogs you specify.

RSS is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. If you see this logo , it means that the website publishes an RSS feed and that you can subscribe simply by clicking on it and choosing the feed reader service of your choice.

To start, first sign into a news feed reader and copy & paste the following RSS feed address into the subscribe box.

Once you compile all your favorite blogs into your reader, you can always check the news feed reader (as you would check your email) and see the most recently published posts.

2 – Subscribe via email

If RSS still scares you, you might want to try subscribing via email. This way, you will be notified by an email each time a new post is published on Cafe Fernando.

Just enter your email address after clicking the link below and start receiving updates from Cafe Fernando.

    Dear Cenk,
    Greetings from San Francisco. Love your blog and SF food! My daughter, who will begin Stanford in this fall, and I will be in Istanbul June 22 – 27. Where shall we eat in Istanbul? Would love to meet you. Staying at Hotel Sari Konak in Sultanahmet.

    Hi Cenk,

    I probably will get sacked as I can’t seem to quit your food and travel blogs. What a brilliant site….Wish Me Luck!!

  6. 6 - George Alexander on April 1st, 2009

    Cenk Bey! So much good stuff in your site. Although I am not Turkish I have been to Turkey for nine (9) visits and love the food. I would love to get more Turkish recipes from your inventive self rather than the basic ones I have in my cookbooks. I am particularly taken with the Turkish penchant for stuffing things with other things. I’m not sure why that is such a popular strategy for Turkish cooks (perhaps easier to consume as finger food?) but I love the playfulness of it. Dolma-eggplant, dolma-tomatoes, even dolma-carrots. But, my request is, if you care to reply: How would prepare manty for an Ottoman pasha or even the Sultan?

  7. 7 - Cenk on April 13th, 2009

    George – Manti is one tough dish. If I ever find time to prepare it, I’ll definitely share the recipe here.

  8. 8 - Maria Varnai on May 12th, 2009

    What a wonderful site! I browsed the net and came accross your blog accidentally. I can promise you I will be back for more!
    (Oh, and one more thing: my Grandmother is of Turkish origin.)

    Great recipes and interesting content. I added your site to my recommended links on my blog in the category “I’m hungry!” I’m originally from San Francisco, now living and working in France.

    Thanks for providing your cooking expertise and ideas!

    Dear Cengiz,

    I just discovered your site from while searching for Turkish food. Your site is very interesting and your creativity shines.

    But I must say what an amazingly beautiful painting on your title bar. Did you paint it?


  12. 12 - Cenk on February 26th, 2010

    Muguet – Thanks! No, it is by one of my favorite artists, Mustafa Pilevneli. Check out his site here.

    I really enjoy your blog. It’s one of the best! I have looked for several years now for seeds to grow peppers used in Turkish dishes without any luck. I wonder if you know where I can buy seeds for Urfa, Maras and Kirmizi peppers. I’d like to grow them in my garden next year. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Lou

  25. 25 - Nóirín Kelly on January 28th, 2012

    Hi there, I came across your website while searching the web for a kestane sekeri recipe. What a hidden gem it is! Wonderful blog, well done to you. And thank you – it’s definitely going to cheer up my gloomy London days.

  28. 28 - Tuche on September 21st, 2012

    Aslında yemek fotoğrafı çekmek ile ilgileniyorum ve kaçımnılmaz olarak sizin blog ile karşılaştım.

    İşin içinde SF ve yemek bu kadar samimi biçimde harmanlanınca ben de size aşağıdaki bir iki noktayı sormalıyım diye düşündüm.

    Mutfak ekipmanları bulmakta belki yol gösterebilirsiniz? Kurabiye kalıpkları ile başım belada da.
    Yeni bir makarna makinası bulmalıyım ama nereden? Eminönü? Kasımpaşa?
    Bir de tabi ekmek yapmak için ille de ekmek makinası şart mı? Sanki değil gibi?

    Daha bir sürü soru var ama şimdilik bunları öğrensem de yeter.

  29. 29 - Cenk on September 23rd, 2012

    Tuche – Mutfak ekipmanları konusunda Kasımpaşa’daki Doğanay Gıda’yı tavsiye ederim. Ekmek makinesi kesinlikle şart değil.

  30. 30 - a.yasemin polat on July 14th, 2014

    çok başarılı bir blog.ayşe armana söylediğine katılmıyorum.bence çok çalışkansın.türk yemeklerinin
