We are foodies ourselves and meals are an important part of our own holidays. Food is one of the reasons for us taking so many holidays in Turkey and a big part of our reasons for moving here.Turkish is possibly the most wide ranging of any of the great world cuisines; this is a result of the geographically widespread influences from around the Ottoman Empire and their trading partners on the silk and spice routes. In Adrasan you will find wonderfully fresh local ingredients (many often grown by the restauranteur or his family). The restaurants, hotels and bars offer a bewildering array of choice of freshly prepared, traditional meals.Turkey is self-sufficient in food and has a massive spread of agrculture right across the country. Produce will be fresh and always local when available. You will find red meats, chicken, fish and seafood in abundance. These will typically be accompanied with bread and rice or potatoes (often home-made chips) with many varieties of wonderful salads and vegetables.
