Unique Stories, Excellent Recipes and Techniques

on August 6, 2015

This book is unique among Turkish cookbooks in the way the author's life and stories gives context to the recipes included. I spent the first three days after receiving this book at Christmas just reading the family stories and looking at the photographs of pre-Otttoman through modern times. Trock's family stories are almost like a Forrest Gump of Istanbul history, with relatives turning up at all sorts of events and situations that are emblematic of the life of that city, for good or bad. The stories are fascinating on their own, but the accompanying recipes make it even more special. I own and use many Turkish cookbooks and feel like the photos and instructions included here are the best I've ever seen for explaining some of the idiosyncracies of Turkish cooking, such as how to prepare roasted eggplant for the puree served with Hunkar Begendi. The book is also very beautiful and lovely to handle, reflecting Trock's training as an architect and artist.

Beyhan Çagri Trock’s “The Ottoman Turk and the Pretty Jewish Girl” is an outstanding Turkish /Sephardic cookbook and fascinating memoir. Trock’s Jewish mother (Beti) and Muslim father (Zeki) immigrated to the United States in the late 1950’s, bringing with them an incredibly rich culture, history, and cuisine. This book contains their story as well as 101 of the authentic  Turkish and Sephardic recipes Beti and Zeki grew up with and cooked at home.
