Turkish Cuisine 

The journey of Turkish food culture has been in continuous development from the past, beginning from Central Asia, Seljuk, and Ottoman Empire to Republican eras, and has excelled.

The great diversity of fauna and flora in Turkiye also contributed to a great variety of regional cuisines. The Western and Turkish Aegean cuisine is based on the remnants of the Ottoman court and the Greek cuisine with a preference for rice over the bulgur.

Fewer spices are used, compared to other regional Turkish cuisines, and seafood is abundant and enjoyed in any season.
