About the site (Site hakkinda)

Hello all,
Welcome to my webpage. I am Hayriye, as you might guess from the name of the website I am Turkish. I was born in Bulgaria and immigrated to Yalova, Turkey in 1989 with my family. After my marriage, I moved to USA with my husband in 2007. I am a Food Scientist and Engineer with a PhD degree. I am also a mother to a sweet son. Relating to my profession, I enjoy both preparing diverse variety of healthy and nutritious meals and learning the science behind.
I’ve grown up with traditional Turkish dining culture. Turkey is and has been a bridge between East and West, Europe and Asia, modernism and traditionalism for centuries. Due to its unique geopolitical condition Turkish dining culture has also been affected. It is composure of Ottoman, Balkan, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and European dining cultures and known as one of cuisines with the largest varieties of dishes in the world for centuries.
Being abroad from Turkey, I’ve realized that every country has a very different and unique dining culture. This led me to claim my wide dining culture and share it with anyone interested. With the support and help of my husband, I have started publishing the recipes and the photographs of my dishes I cook at home at this Turkish food and recipes site. All the photographs are taken by me and are copyright, Turkish Food and Receipes. Also, the ingredients I use are easy to find and budget-friendly. All the recipes are tested by me, my family and my friends. I make improvements and updates, as I cook the recipes several times. So, it’s a kind of work in a progress. I will be posting new recipes continuously and feel free to contact with me for questions, comments or suggestions (turkishfoodandrecipe@gmail.com). You can also subscribe to my blog by entering your email address to the address window on the right side. If you do this, you will receive the content via email when I publish a new post.
My mother, an excellent cook, is my master who has inspired me for cooking since my childhood. Now I am trying to be as ingenious as my mom in the kitchen and I am looking forward to sharing my cooking experiences in US with you.
Additionally; I will be sharing my professional advice on how to cook nutritious, non-contaminated, microbiologically safe meals. I will help you to cook hygienic foods and learn the cooking tips for having the maximum nutritional benefits from all foods.
I would like to thank everyone who made contributions to this website. Special thanks go to my mom for providing invaluable advices and making me gain precious experience on cooking, my dad and sister for their support, and my husband for always being on my side and his endless help and support.
Being a good cook requires hard work and special care. Every dish you cook deserves a smile and appreciation. There is a Turkish saying that we use to thank to the cook and appreciate what he/she did: “Ellerinize saglik” which can be translated to English as “Thanks to your hands”. I would like to say “Ellerinize saglik” of all.
I hope you like my website. Enjoy all the food and recipes.

Merhabalar,
Ben Hayriye, websiteme hosgeldiniz. Websitemin isminden de anlasilabilecegi gibi Turkum. Kisa bir ozgecmis vermek gerekirse; Bulgaristan dogumluyum. 1989 yilinda, kucuk bir kiz iken milyonlarca Osmanli kokenli Turk ile birlikte, anavatanimiz Turkiye’ye goc ettik ve Yalova’ya yerlestik. Universiteyi Gida muhendisi olarak bitirdikden sonra, evlenip esimle birlikte Amerika’ya geldim. Yakin zamanda gida uzerine doktorami aldim ve vaktimin cogunu tatli ogluma annelik yaparak geciriyorum .
Kucuklugumden beri geleneksel Turk yemek kulturuyle buyudum. Turkiye’nin yuzyillardir Dogu ile Bati’nin, Avrupa ile Asya’nin modernizmi ve geleneginin bulustugu bir kopru olusu ve bu ozel jeopolitik konumu; Turk yemek kulturunu de etkilemistir. Sonuc olarak; yemek kulturumuz Osmanli, Balkan, Akdeniz, Ortadogu ve Avrupa yemek kulturlerinin bir karisimi olarak; dunyanin en zengin yemek kulturleri listesinin bas siralarinda yerini almistir.
Turkiye’den uzakta gecirdigim sure icinde, her ulkenin farkli ve kendine ozgu bir yemek kulturu oldugunu farkettim. Bu durum; Turk yemek kulturumuzu sahiplenmeme ve ilgilenen herkesle paylasma istegine yol acti. Esimin de yardimi ve destegiyle evde pisirdigim Turk yemeklerinin tariflerini ve fotograflarini bu sitede yayinlamaya karar verdim. Sitemde bulunan butun fotograflari kendim cektim ve isim hakkina sahibim. Kullandigim butun malzemeler, kolayca bulunabilecek, hesapli malzemelerdir.Butun yayinladigim tarifler; kendim, ailem ve arkadaslarim tarafindan test ediliyor. Tarifleri defalarca yaptigimda, uzerlerinde yeni gelismeler ve guncellemeler yapiyorum; yani suregelen bir calisma icerisinde olup, devamli yeni tarifler yayinliyorum. Yayinladigim yemek tarifleriyle ilgili sorularinizi, goruslerinizi ve onerilerinizi her zaman yorumlara yazabilir yada adresime gonderebilirsiniz (turkishfoodandrecipe@gmail.com). Ayrica yandaki kutucuga emailinizi girerek bloguma uye olabilirsiniz. Boylelikle yayinladigim yeni tarifler size email olarak bildirilecektir.
Cocuklugumdan beri; yemek yapma konusundaki merakimi ve bundan buyuk zevk almami, mukemmel bir asci olan anneme borcluyum. O benim icin her zaman kusursuz bir ornek olmustur. Simdi ben de annemden ogrendigim bilgiler ile mesleki bilgilerim dogrultusunda, mutfakta onun gibi marifetli olmaya calisiyorum ve Amerika’daki mutfak ve yemek tecrubelerimi sizlerle paylasmak icin sabirsizlaniyorum.
Ayrica: besleyici, lezzetli, kontamine olmamis, hijyenik ve mikrobiyolojik olarak guvenli, kisacasi daha saglikli yemek pisirmek ve daha saglikli beslenmek icin mesleki bilgilerimi sizlerle paylasiyor olacagim. Pratik bilgiler ve ipuclari ile, tuketmis oldugunuz gidalardan maksimum duzeyde yararlanmanizi saglamaya calisacagim.
Bu sitenin ortaya cikmasinda emegi gecen; bana ogrettigi degerli bilgiler ve kazandirdigi tecrubeler icin sevgili anneme; destekleri icin kardesim ve babama; sonsuz destek, fikir ve yardimlariyla her zaman yanimda olan esime cok tesekkur ediyorum.
Iyi ve guzel yemek yapmak; emek ve ozen gerektirir. Yapilan her yemek bir tebessum ve “Ellerine saglik” hak eder. Simdiden hepinizin ellerine saglik!
Umarim sitemi begenirsiniz. Size simdiden afiyet olsun.
