Review

"Ozcan claims Turkish cuisine is one of the greatest in the world…[his recipes] manage to be fairly persuasive."—New York Times

"Ozcan Ozan's Sultan's Kitchen deliciously captures the flavors of Turkish cooking traditions…Professionals and home cooks alike will find lots of savory ideas within the pages of this book to expand their repertoire of prized Mediterranean recipes."—Greg Drescher, Director of Education, The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone

About the Author

Chef Ozcan Ozan grew up in Izmir, Turkey, and has been cooking for nearly thirty years. Before coming to Boston he cooked professionally in Europe and Turkey, learning his craft in the traditional European fashion of working at each kitchen position until he became executive chef. He attended the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Paris. He is a member of the James Beard Association and cooked for the 1995 James Beard Awards dinner. His restaurant, Sultan's Kitchen, has been profiled in the Boston Phoenix as well as the Boston Globe, and was selected as the Best Middle Eastern Restaurant in Boston for 1997 by Boston Magazine. Zagat Restaurant Survey has ranked Sultan's Kitchen as Boston's Best Middle Eastern Restaurant for four years. Ozcan has appeared on TV and radio programs here and abroad. He lives north of Boston with his wife and two sons.

Photographer Carl Tremblay is well known for his knack of bringing out the beauty in food and food-related objects. He created the photographs for The Olives Table (1997), and his work regularly appears in Boston Magazine as well as Cook's Illustrated, Inc. Magazine, and Yankee magazine.

This is the BEST cookbook! I am NOT an experienced cook, but I was even able to make the BREAD (from scratch!) for the meat filled pastry (Katmer with Kiymali filling)! I had no trouble understanding the instructions or finding the ingredients (they were ALL available at my local grocery!)! Another great thing about it is the photographs! There are a LOT! (If it looks good, then you want to cook it, right?) I have cooked my way through half the recipes and loved them all! This book made me a much more confident cook! Oh, I almost forgot to say, everything tastes GREAT! I don't even have to go to a Turkish restaurant anymore!

I have lived in Turkey and enjoyed the food perhaps too much. Also my hobby is collecting Turkish cookbooks and cooking Turkish food. This book is at the top of my list. Every recipe I've tried has been perfection. Not due to my cooking skills but because of the quality of the recipe. Don't hesitate to buy this book.

I am keen on collecting cookbooks. As I am Turkish I have a special interest in Turkish cuisine. I have 9 books on this topic, 4 of them in English. Ozcan Ozan's book is the best among them. Turkish food, definitely very tasty, but is not all that easy to prepare. Ozan explains each step very clearly and the measures he gives are very accurate. Apparently he genuinely put a lot of thought into it and wrote it in a way that everybody could apply.

Format: Paperback
When I ordered The Sultan's Kitchen on Amazon.com, at first I was skeptical because most cookbooks on Turkish cuisine published in English are not very authentic. But I was wrong; this book is full of authentic Turkish recipes adapted for use in North American kitchens. It is a beautifully produced cookbook, full of color and glossy photographs of finished dishes. No detail is overlooked in the production of this book. It is such a beautiful cookbook that one could easily display on one's coffee table. However, the real strength of this book lies in the precision of its recipes. The author who is a celebrity chef in Boston, has gone in great length in producing a Turkish cookbook that will allow even a moderately skilled cook to produce sumptuous Turkish dishes at home. This book is all about flavor. This is a kind of book that not only home cooks but professional chefs alike will find very beneficial. The recipes in the book harmoniously blend together, so one could easily mix and match various dishes in creating menus when entertaining others. However, the author even compiled suggested menus for different seasons of the year to ease the task of the reader.

Chef Ozcan Ozan's book does a good job in presenting the reader with an insight into rustic classical cooking in Turkey, but does not address the new style Turkish cuisine one finds in big metropolitan cities such as Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara and Adana in modern day Turkey. I guess with ever changing life styles, Turkish cuisine is also evolving all the time just like French and Italian cuisines. Turkish cuisine undoubtedly is one of the greatest cuisines in the world together with French and Chinese cuisines.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book recently and I was very impressed. The recipes are largely practical. They contain everyday ingredients which are not difficult to source, and there's a wide variety of recipes for every taste. The bread section has many of interesting projects; I made the rustic chickpea bread with fermented chickpea starter and it was heaven. However the bread section is the source of my one caveat for the book - the recipes look delicious, but many of them are not very practical. There are breads and boreks which would take a pretty long time and some dedication to do, with all the kneading, folding etc. required. I'm an experienced Turkish cook and intend to have my own restaurant, so I like to experiment as much as possible, but even I'm not really up for many of the bread projects. That is the only negative I've got about the book though. It's a beautiful thing in itself, the photographs are excellent and really inspire you to make the dishes. However, it's also practical. I use my books to work from and their spatters attest to this! The page with the most spatters is probably the 'chicken in a clay pot' one, as that's my boyfriend's favourite. I would really recommend this beautiful book to both the beginner and experienced Turkish cook.

I used to live in Boston and regularly dine at the Sultan's Kitchen. It is the only Turkish restaurant I've visited in the US that immediately transport's me to my Hala's kitchen in Istanbul. I'm thrilled to have this book available to me. It is one way for me to stay connected to family so far away. I highly recommend this book to anyone. Turkish food is delicious and The Sultan's Kitchen makes the best.

We had just returned from a month in Turkey and were looking for a way to prepare some of the fabulous dishes we had enjoyed. This cookbook was a real find and we have been dining on our favorites ever since its arrival. We highly recommend this cookbook.
