During your stay in Paris, don’t miss out on the riches of Turkish gastronomy! Turkish gastronomy is one of the most varied in the world, and it is also the third richest gastronomy after that of France and China.
In predominantly European countries, Turkish cuisine unfortunately does not enjoy much recognition. It is often limited to kebab and white sauce! However, Turkish cuisine is much more varied than that!
Turkey is a crossroads between Europe, Asia and the East. This unique geographical location combined with the migrations of Turks over the centuries from Central Asia to Europe has built the identity of its haute cuisine. The reciprocal influence between Turkey and neighboring countries (Greece, Middle East, Balkans, Iran, Armenia, etc.) makes it possible to find many common dishes in these kitchens.
The cuisine of Western Turkey and the Aegean Sea is largely based on the remnants of Ottoman court cuisine, with a preference for rice rather than bulgur. The use of spices is moderate and in this region seafood is abundant and can be enjoyed all year round!
Restaurant Derya, recognized by the best starred chefs in Paris. Highly recommend dolma, mantis or even börek. Restaurant Derya is considered in the list of the best Turkish Restaurant in Paris.
