Beyoğlu Street Food

In this section you will find my version recipes of the food that was offered or explained during the Beyoğlu Street Food walk. Because street food is quite unique and some of the food is not suitable to cook at home, the recipes are limited. However I have provided some recipes that could be made as an alternative to food that was tasted during the tour.

In order to replicate the food that you have tasted, you may need to purchase some special ingredients before leaving Turkey. At the bottom of the recipes you may find information as to where to get the unique Turkish ingredients.

Make sure to read the entire recipe before starting cooking. As a suggestion; gather the ingredients first, make the necessary preparations (this is called mise-en-place in the professional world), and then start cooking. This will cut your cooking time by half.

Under the recipe titles the abbreviations used represent whether the recipe is vegetarian (V) or gluten free (GF).
