    You mean lavaş !!
    Actually, I don't think Turkish bread is nice as it used to be.
    The best bread I have ever eaten was on North Cyprus.
    Don't eat too much though, it is very fattening.

    I enjoy Turkish bread but disagree that you can't get good bread in the Uk. And for variety we are really spoilt. You have to support your local shops like the Turkish people do. I love batch bread (sometimes called plain bread), stoneground wholemeal, the little cottager loaves that are all floury on top, multigrain and seeded batch bread, oat bread. Close to work I can also get polish black bread, rye bread, italian bread and of course baguettes and vienna loaves. The small rolls are also great everything from baps, to floury, breakfast, little crusty ones and the small loaves.
    I think its great that even the corner shops in Turkey sell fresh yeast, i love to make all sorts of bread, by hand not machine, I find it very therapeutic and calming, but I bet I would get much better results with fresh yeast.

    At last someone who is not wearing Kuşadası rose tinted glasses! Good on you Waverly. There are wonderful breads made all over the world, Turkey doesn't have the patent. Each country has it's own applications for bread. For example, how could you make sandwiches with Turkish bread. An English Sandwich or farmhouse loaf is the perfect basis for a thinly sliced tomato or cucumber sandwich with a slight sprinkling of salt... absolute heaven! At a stretch, one could possibly make a French onion soup with Turkish bread but a real French loaf cannot be beaten for this purpose. Also don't knock the humble bread machine; it;s so easy to use and from our numerous experiments with different methods and ingredients we have discovered that the most delicious result is using a basic loaf recipe (From the instruction book) with the addition of dried fenugreek leaves. (Çemen), which are easily grown here from seed in your back garden.

    Not knocking the bread machine... its a great invention, I just love making bread by hand, the whole kneading and knocking back process, takes time but it is also great for stress relief. I just enjoy it. It reminds me that in my rather hectic life, some things are worth taking time over.

    I do some nice variations like onion bread and garlic, also differnent fruits and seeds.

    I was stationed in Turkey in 1964. Of all the memories that I cherish, aside from the lovely English girl that I was dating, was the bread. I have never tasted bread like that anywhere else in the world. I would love to find a recipe that would duplicate that wonderful bread.
