Warm Greetings From Turkey

  1. 1. WARM GREETINGS FROM TED ISTANBUL COLLEGE, ISTANBUL, TURKIYE Prepared by: Burcu Akyol English Teacher Resources: http://www.turkeyforyou.com/ http://www.allaboutturkey.com/
  2. 2. About Turkey Turkish culture is an immense mixture partly produced by the rich history. The original lands of Turks is Central Asia, bordering China. From this location, they were forced to move west for various reasons more than a thousand years ago. On the way to Anatolia they have interacted with Chinese, Indian, Middle Eastern, European and Anatolian civilizations, and today's Turkish culture carries motives from each one of these diverse cultures.
  3. 3. Mustafa Kemal ATATURK Mustafa Kemal Ataturk is universally acknowledged as the founding father of the modern state of Turkey. He was also Turkey's first President. He was a visionary statesman and a military leader par excellence. His surname, Ataturk, means the ancestor of Turks. This name was given to him by the first Turkish parliament for his accomplishments and for his invaluable contributions to the birth and modernization of the Turkish Republic.
  4. 4. Istanbul • The splendid city of Istanbul has many unique and fascinating features. • It is the only city in the world reaching across two continents, with its old city in Europe and modern Istanbul situated in Asia, separated by the Bosphorus Strait. • It is also unique in having had capital status during two successive empires, Christian Byzantine and Islamic Ottoman, and the legacy from both is visible in the modern city today.

  11. 11. Turkish Food Bread is the main item in a Turkish meal. The basic wheat dough is baked into fresh loaves usually in the neighborhood bakery. There are varieties of breads like the elmek, pide or manti, which is a dumpling with meat filling. Borek is a special bread where thin sheets of dough are layered with cheese or meat mixes, folded or rolled and then baked or fried. Pilaf, another main dish in Turkey is fine-grained rice cooked in butter with onions, meat and vegetables. The typical Turkish meat item is Kebab. The popular varieties of kebabs are the 'sis' kebabs and the 'doner' kebabs. Sis kebabs are grilled pieces of skewered meat. Doner kebabs are made by stacking alternate layers of ground meat and sliced leg of lamb and grilling them over slow fire. The fine taste of kebabs really depends on the breed of cattle or sheep rather than the chef or the recipe.
  12. 12. Turkish Food Among vegetables, eggplants are a special favorite. Olive oil is generally used for cooking vegetables A special Turkish food item is 'Dolma'. Vegetables are stuffed with rice or spiced meat fillings and cooked in olive oil. 'Dolma' is eaten with yogurt sauce. Fish is an important item of Turkish food especially in winter when the summer vegetables are scarce. The best fish in Turkey is the 'Hamsi'. The Turks have fifty ways of cooking Hamsi.

  16. 16. Turkish Delight is a flavored sweetmeat or a candy, prepared from starch and sugar, filled with dry fruits, honey or nuts. The Turkish Delights come in cubes with powdered sugar sprinkled on them. The Turkish Delight or Lokum is one such delicacy, which is not just popular in Turkey, but has found favor with tourists from all over the world.
  17. 17. The Turkish Evil Eye Pendants or the quot;nazar boncuguquot; is the Turkish means of keeping at bay the ills brought on by envious and greedy eyes.
  18. 18. Almost anywhere you go in Turkey, you will find at least one Turkish Bath. The historical Baths built by the Sultans were made of marble. They were fine pieces of rich and ornamental architecture.
  19. 19. Climate in Turkey Turkey has Mediterranean temperate climate with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. As you go away from the coast towards the interiors, the climatic conditions are harsher. Mountains close to the coast prevent Mediterranean influences from extending inland, giving the interior of Turkey a continental climate with distinct seasons. The central Anatolian Plateau is much more subject to extremes than coastal areas. Winters on the plateau are especially severe.
