What helped me relax after a long week of hard work in the office was to bake bread with my bare hands (think pounding the dough with my fist – my ideal therapy). I was once inspired by Michel Roux Jr’s Sandwhich

Eat Bulgar Köfte!

I ate “Bulgar Köfte” for the first time during my trip to North Cyprus a couple of weeks ago and I loved it. It’s a traditional Turkish snack made from a bulgar wheat shell filled with minced beef, onions, parsley and spices.
