This book of Turkish vegetarian recipes has been been compiled in response to popular demand from guests at world-renowned Huzur Vadisi Yoga Retreat in Turkey. Based on fresh vegetables, herbs, fruits, pulses, nuts, yogurt, cheese, seeds and dried fruits - the recipes are a nutritionist’s dream. The food at Huzur Vadisi, described as ‘legendary’ by Harpers & Queen magazine, is an exploration of what magic can be created using simple ingredients. Cook Sevgi Aykut learned the art at her mother’s knee and instinctively knows how to use every local ingredient in varied and surprising ways. Sevgi has a natural gift and brings her own special touch to the full repertoire of traditional and local dishes. The delicious food is an integral part of the Huzur Vadisi experience for which guests return year after year.
