this is the girls' absolute favorite Turkish food -- manti. it's a meat dumpling with garlic yogurt sauce with a sprinkle of dried mint, sumac, and a little butter tomato sauce and crushed red pepper. it's so good...i need to try to make it.

alinazik (Turkish) Egg plant & meat dish ( you can also make it with beef)
Kunefe recipe (Turkish). I had this amazing dessert at Anatolia in Nashville. If you're ever in town you must eat there.
