This week on Milk Street Radio, chef Ana Sortun unveils the secrets of Turkish cooking.
“I think the very first time I went to Turkey, I was invited to go study with a couple of women. One lived in the southeast of Turkey, and she organized a potluck that was put on by her friends where they all prepared a dish that was really special to them.”
“I tasted 30 of these dishes that day and I didn’t know what any of them were. I had never tasted anything like them before, so I didn’t necessarily feel like I had come home. But what I did know was that I wanted to understand what was behind them, [that] this was a really interesting way of cooking and that I really needed to know more.”
We also take a look at a Vietnamese-style weeknight dinner with Andrea Nguyen; wine expert Stephen Meuse explores the sommelier’s romance with one wine, and we offer our recipe for caramel oranges. And as always, Sara Moulton and Christopher Kimball take your calls.
