Let’s Meet With Turkish Gevrek!


As you already might know Turkish cuisine is very rich in offering. I consider you have already read previous articles about Turkish manti, midye dolma and Turkish Coffee. If you missed them yallah just go ‘ lifestyle’ title. Breakfast is a very important part of Turkish People life.  That’s why you can enjoy a nice spread of breads, jams, butters, chees, veggies , olives and much more… It’s totally different than the European breakfast culture but more similar with Middle East breakfast tradition. Gevrek is generally served plain, or for breakfast with tea, fruit preservescheese or ayran.  But For me the most important thing at breakfast gevrek – white cheese and Turkish tea☺ I don’t need those nice spreads… Just give me  Gevrek, cheese and Tea .

Many people call gevrek as a ‘ simit’ But people who are from the western part of Turkey, they call asa gevrek, and I am from that part☺

Gevrek is a circular bread, typically encrusted with sesame seeds or, less commonly, poppy, flax or sunflower seeds, found across the cuisines of the former Ottoman Empire, and the Middle East.
