Lisa Silver Remembers Turkish Sites and Flavors
Host: Next we’ll meet Lisa Silver who works in the world of fashion. Lisa’s responsible for orchestrating many fashions shows right here in New York City. Our crew met up with her to discuss her past trip to Turkey and how she’s remain a loyal friend to Turkish cuisine.
Lisa Silver: Turkey was a really beautiful place and first the place is beautiful and Istanbul is a very vibrant city and lots of people and the people were very friendly and I went to Istanbul, I went to Borsa—my friend is from Borsa so I heard a lot about it and so that was more meaningful because I have heard about it. I tried the Iskando kebab which is where it was created, from the famous Iskando restaurant. It was delicious, it has lamb, it's thinly sliced in a tomato sauce and it is over this kind of fried Turkish bread with yogurt and it's delicious. I like dolma, the grape leaves and then I like toduk a lot, it's what the yogurt and cucumbers, put a little salt in there, it's really good. I had a lot of Turkish food in a lot of restaurants in Manhattan and I have tried to make Turkish food.
One of the things that I’ve made is the dolma and then I also made the limborgin and I may not be saying that right but it's a kind of a pizza appetizer with lamb on top. I make toduk, I made it—I make that often because after I went to Turkey I got used to the Turkish breakfasts and I would eat tomatoes and cucumbers and put yogurt on top and it was really satisfying and I started buying it here after Turkey. I started making toduk at home. I got lots of souvenirs in turkey, one of my favorite souvenirs is a Turkish rug, it's beautiful, and I was with my Turkish friends who haggled for me in Turkish. One of the things that’s fun to do in Turkey is to haggle with the vendors and you don’t do that in the United States and so it was fun and I got a good discount on my rug.
I like the desserts, I don’t know what they’re called, but they taste good. Honey, butter, pistachios, it's very good.
