19 comments Nov 13th, 2009 | By | Category: Blogevents

Quite honestly I am stunned by how many people have participated this event. I want to thank you all, this is far beyond my expectations. What surprised me as well is how many German speaking friends and co-bloggers participated which leads me to the first change we have. The event will be taking place as well on my German language blog.

From now on you can post the German participations there and the English participation here.
This is the list of the participants!

Below you will find a voting form which gives you the possibility to vote your favourite dish.

Rosa participated with Stuffed Quinces or Ayva Dolmasi. A lovely recipe that mixes quince with ground beef or lamb. Spiced with cinnamon.

Robert participated with a vegetarian dish of lentils and couscous. It is called Mercimek Köftesi and just looks delicious.

Mestolo cooked Imam Bayildi for the event. A dish that is as well known here in Greece. Eggplants in one of their tastiest ways.

From Beirut, Jumana posted a recipe called Caramelized pumpkin with clotted cream (Kabak tatlisi). A lovely and easy to do sweet.

Ramki had not enough with one recipe but posted a whole recipe collection. All 10 recipes can be found here.

Kiymali Ispanak was posted by Ruby. A yummy dish made form spinach, rice and ground beef.

Petra from Chilli and Ciabata posted three recipes. Two soups and one salad. The first soup is yayla çorbas, a soup of yoghurt, rice and mint. Her second soup uses yoghurt in combination with pumpkin. And finally she posted

Mercimek Piyazi, which is a delicious looking lentil salad. A special thank you for so much enthusiasm!

A lovely dish made of white beans, called Kurufasülye, was poted by Ekrem from the noobchefs. Wonderfully simple and very original dish.

Soframiz is participating with Cig köfte. An interesting mix of Bulgur and minced meat. A Mezze served with Raki.

Seelensturm has cooked for us in English and in German. The dish is a tasty bulgur salad.

Menemen is what you get in Tuky for breakfast. Minimalistic but fresh. Posted by Islandgirl.

Petra is servin two dishes. A shepards salad “Hirtensalad” in combination with minced meat in a joghurt and mint sauce.

For Queedin it is the first cooking event ever. We get served a warm carrot salad that Queedin learned on a trip to Tukey.

Spinach cooked a Turkish way is presented by kochfun. A simple but delicious recipe for spinach lovers.

Sigara Böregi and Sesami Peanuts are presented by the CorumBlog. Two lovely dishes, one with miced lamb meat and one with nuts and honey!

  5. Blumenkohl-Mussaka – Karnibahar Musakka…

    Die türkischen Rezepte der letzten Zeit sind ja nicht nur bei den Chili und Ciabatta-Lesern gut angekommen, sondern haben auch mir ausgesprochen gut gefallen. Deshalb geht es heute gleich weiter, schließlich war noch ein halber Blumenkohl zu verwerten….
