“When we consider that almost all the Balkan peoples have at their tables moussaka, meatballs, pilaf, pies, baklava, etc.. and that all were for centuries under the Turks, then only one conclusion may be logical: all the dishes they have received from Turks. Do you have a purely Turkish food, or some of them come from Arab or Persian cuisine is not very significant – it is important that they were brought to the Balkans by the Turks.” – quote from the serbian newspaper “Blic”
Since the administrators of this site is personally convinced that the Serbian cuisine is still very different from the Turkish tasteless food, the question is whether the quote from the newspaper “Blic” (which we found on the Internet) is correct.
Turkish cuisine is truly tasteless (at least what we tried in hotels in the Turkish resort of Kusadasi). The only thing that is true is that we have kept some of the names of dishes, but we definitely gave them our “stamp”. Also, all that remained of the Turks are delights: Urmašice, baklava, etc..
