Long known for its venerable court cuisine, Turkey also has a fascinating culinary history associated with the Mevlevi Sufi tradition championed by the poet and mystic Rumi, the founder of the whirling dervishes. With Myra as your tour guide, you’ll explore and savor Turkey’s authentic piquant flavors from her and Stephen’s latest book, Cooking with the Muse, using Maras and Urfa peppers, nigella, sumac, and pekmez (grape syrup) – one of the original sweeteners before sugar – as well as pomegranate molasses.
