Antakya's Traybake kebab with vegetables - Tepsi Kebabi: Another specialty from my hometown Antakya in southern Turkey; I have fond memories of preparing this kebab mixture with mum and taking to our local bakery in Long Market, Antakya, for this feast to be baked. It is an easy and impressive dish to enjoy with friends and family.

Zesty semolina sponge cake in light syrup - Revani: A zesty, fragrant sponge cake, very popular in Turkish cuisine, since the Ottoman period. A lovely light dessert you can prepare ahead of time.

Turkish coffee: Our aromatic Turkish coffee is the perfect way to end any meal, and it is more than a drink for Turks; Ozlem will show you how to make the real thing, with its rituals.
