    I greatly appreciate that you showed a wide variety of Turkish ingredients and dishes. Food can easily open one’s heart and eyes to the possibilities. I know what you meant when you said people think the French only eat snails. **sigh** Where I come from people think I surf or hula, and just bask in the sun all day long. Certainly every people and culture have a very wide variety to boast. There is depth, and passion, along with the traditional and new. Your channel is important, because it helps to awaken and enliven the senses to many more things to love and enjoy. Lots of love to you Alex, thank you for doing this for us all.

      The name itself comes from the turkish verb pastırmak. As it is the same for döner and çevirme, meaning rotating. So now you know where shwarma comes from!

    If anyone's ever in NY checkout a place called Simit + Smith. Used to have breakfasts there cause it's quiet, tiny, never crowded. Their hours are peculiar, check before you go. But they have great Simit ..so if this video triggered your cravings..stop by there!

    Great video ! There is so much to see in and taste in Turkey. I hope you will go back there and show us more about Turkish cuisine. By the way the S with the cedilla is (Sh) in Turkish. Like the word "Shrimp" for exemple.

    Hands down the best cooking show out there. You make everything so easy. I never thought I could make a soufleè. By watching chef shows you'd think it was really hard some people on masterchef even screw it up. I followed your method and nailed it my first try. TY for making me look like a pro to the ladies.

    Bagels should be called American Simit? That's like saying croissants should be called French Kipferl (Oh wait, croissants ARE French Kipferl). BTW the bagel is thought to be a Polish invention. Jewish Poles brought it to America.

    Hey Alex- We hear chefs speaking of taste, texture, smell, presentation, preparation, bite, mouth feel... But, not "The Process" I love eating pistachios too but a big part of that is opening them up. Most are simple enough but I also have a method for those, not quite ready to open pistachios. I also enjoy taking apart a roasted chicken. My mother could talk your ear off about extracting the goodies from a lobster. How about an episode about foods that you enjoy the process of eating?
