Hi , everyone .
This is a welcome to Turkish food and travel .
I'm very excited to make a kitchen tour .
You want it from me for a long time ?
So here we are .
Before we begin , I wanna tell you a couple of things .
I spent most of the time in a day in my kitchen .
As you probably all know , we have a balcony and uh mixed with like a living room kind of .
So we do spend a lot of time there too .
Sometimes I rush to film before , usually in the winter time before the sun sets the to have the light .
So things can get very mixed up my drawers and the cabos are not always very neat .
It's normal I think , but I wanted to make it as natural as possible before I begin to feel , wanted to organize the things that I already have with some little changes .
I'm also going to talk about the ingredients .
I have a little bit about the Turkish cuisine , what we use most .
So let's begin here .
I have my little pantry and my leg is the rice .
I have some more here on the back and these are I use them .
Uh From here I have red lentils .
This is the ancient one from , this is b red pepper paste .
From last year I shared the recipe with you .
You can uh make it think of it a simple home version .
You can enjoy year long adding to your dishes and it gives really nice taste and color .
This is mix of tomato and red pepper paste .
This one , this is only tomato here .
Some uh coffee herbs .
I have some uh buffers here , natural mineral water and uh my pastas and here I have my pants trays , my cake pan , different size .
This is very old to make baguettes .
I have in different sizes of rectangular pans that I use for uh making bread , round pans in different sizes .
I use them a lot .
I think they usually don't have it in Europe .
They have a in rectangular , but these are very good , especially when you make oven dishes .
I shared like many recipes with it on the uh lower shelf .
I have again the rectangular baking pans .
And when you continue from there , I have my good old refrigerator .
I had some trouble in the last weeks .
Uh Thankfully , after changing one part , it is working now , I have some mineral water .
The leftover dishes , I have green lentil soup and some Turkish cur potato and rice dish .
And here I have fresh parsley and mint .
I keep it in here and I have my um cucumbers for the breakfast .
Some peppers , eggplants , lemons and some tomatoes .
Here here are my jams , the strawberry Queens orange rose .
And uh I have a little bit of yogurt left homemade .
These are vinegar .
I mix it with water like one tablespoon vinegar with one cup of water .
One hour before the breakfast .
That's it .
And here is my oven .
I have a kettle here since it is uh very white .
It gets the heat better .
My tray here , uh on the back , I have uh these machines for uh waffle .
The other one makes mini doughnuts .
Uh This is for ice cream .
I'm planning to make the ice cream Turkish very soon .
And hopefully I'm gonna share with you .
And here I have these are usually I use for serving , uh , there .
Uh I use them to make soup large rice pudding on this site .
I have my coffee machine and I bought these jars .
These are new .
I put tea , flour , sugar , earl gray tea and coffee in them .
Uh , they look very pretty and I'm also planning to use the sugar and flour when I feel .
So they will be handy here .
I think I put my cups in here .
I have my seasonings , a black pepper , red pepper flakes , oregano , mint and salt pepper .
The salt pepper has a more dense flavor and the smoky kind of flavor .
It's very smell , yummy .
I use it for here I have my utensils .
This is these are wood .
Um This is uh to carve a egg plant or a zucchini .
When you are making , this is to uh cut chestnut .
It is very useful .
This is also for the stuffed pepper to make uh uh to take out the stamp part of the paper .
This is another uh gadget very handy .
Many of you asked me uh where I bought it from , this is from IKEA , but I don't think they sell it anymore .
And here I have another drawer .
These uh cutlery are for guests .
You don't use it daily .
And here I have baking papers , aluminum foils bags .
And these are the wooden molds for the cookies .
I make , I have different designs .
I have , I shared the recipe with you before .
These are for the uh picnic .
Hopefully we do it in the summer .
I have my here in different sizes and this is my silicon mat .
The next thing here I use this part a lot .
I have my tea glasses .
This is the one I use the most and let me quickly show you how we use it .
We have these uh little saucers .
You put the glass here and serve it like this .
And when you drink , you drink it , you hold it from top .
Uh We don't put the tea all the way up and this is how you drink it .
I use this again when I'm filming , I like the colors and this is the top and here the one , we mostly use the glasses .
These are daily ones , we have different kinds of glasses and here on up , uh I have again glasses but uh I don't use them often .
I keep it for the guests because uh over the time they can get scratches uh in the dishwasher .
So I keep them uh separate the and I don't use it daily .
They are coming to the part that you usually see when I'm filming because we are closer to the top .
I really like this part .
I keep my spatulas , the sifter .
I have uh this vis in different sizes and shapes and my copper , a small pan , they use it special for then you make a butter sauce with red pepper .
A be be pour over the uh soups before serving .
So uh I , I bought this one because it looks very pretty and the traditional one and this is the , and this is traditional to uh serve iron yogurt drink with it .
This is also new and very handy .
I really liked it because it is full glass .
Even the top part , it is easy to clean my is glass .
It is not easy to take care of .
Uh after you clean it , you have to dry it with this cloth in this shelf .
It is the closest one to my uh before I had my teas and coffee .
But I decided to put my other seasonings as well as the yeast and the or the pasta and salad pasta .
I use it a lot for soups and rice .
My baking soda and this is solid .
It is the main ingredient for the Turkish ice cream as well as the milk drink .
We made salad and on top , I have more double pots and more peel the parts for the hand blender .
Sometimes we do need more teapots than , especially when we have guests .
This is another part I use daily all the time .
It is very close to the uh table where we eat .
So I put the , the my plates that I use .
Mostly these are very sturdy and very light .
So I use them .
These are are my regular cutlery .
I put this kitchen towel because when you work , when you grab something , it can get dirty , you know .
So it is uh useful to uh cover it .
And here are my bows .
I use them a lot and I also have my food processor .
This is very uh handy as you can see it's light and these are for the washing the rice and uh other like OK , I have this magnetic thing for my knives .
It is really useful to keep them here and take it out .
I really like it .
And we came to another pantry , I can say here it is .
Don't look at this .
I keep my dried fruits and nuts .
We usually eat with tea on the up .
I have cereal , the famous uh Tahini sesame paste and honey .
These are uh , I have cocoa powder , uh , corn , flour and corn starch or wheat starch in uh three of them .
Here , I keep my baking powder and the vanilla in turkey .
We usually have these jars and then you buy honey or molasses .
This is like the traditional one we get .
So , uh , I have lots of them .
Uh That's why I didn't want to buy another uh jars to make it more like pretty .
So I wanted to still use them but to reorganize it to make it look pretty .
I just bought these lids in same colors .
I have also these smaller ones .
These are also old , very old from United States .
I really like the design .
It's very classic and I'm still using them .
Uh This is dried powder .
Uh You make soup with it .
The first really ancient uh soup , I can say I have shared the recipe , make sure to uh check down from the links .
It is also fermented .
So uh good for health .
Uh you dry out and uh keep uh use it year long to make soup .
This is the tea brand I'm using mostly the favorite one is the chai teriyaki .
You always ask me again .
I want to mention that my cupboard doesn't always look like this .
Sometimes you buy many things from sale , for example .
So it doesn't look very me like this .
It's normal , I think since it's a living kitchen , I try to reorganize like once in a month and check my shelves .
What I have what I don't have what I need to finish before I buy something else .
So nothing is wasted .
I have my pants .
This is my bread machine .
This one is a power source .
It , it changes the power from 2 20 to 110 because my mixer is from the United States and this is also very handy .
Uh I can place it like this .
I bought this also from IKEA .
Across to that bowl .
I just show this is my island .
I have another shelf here .
I have some serving plate here in the corner .
I have my uh onions , some walnuts , the hazelnuts are from Zone City .
It's been three years , I think I didn't go there .
So we are planning to go this year hopefully and show you .
Of course , it's really beautiful uh city .
It is really hard to collect hazelnuts by the way .
Uh Here is my kitchen island .
I don't usually put on here .
This is for you guys and I have some guests at home .
On top shelf .
I have in four different sizes of containers .
Here , I have a rice , whole wheat flour and a sugar in them .
Uh Since I use a lot , I like to put them into this container .
I have my cast iron pans .
I use them daily almost .
I have my flour here .
It doesn't look very fancy but it is very useful because I use the flower a lot .
Since I make my bread at home , you can just put it right at the 10 kg of flour at once .
So I , I like to keep it here after the kitchen .
You come to the balcony , which is kind of a dining area .
Uh We have our TV .
Uh I keep uh some of the utensils that I don't use it or if I have the double ones and let me show you here that um I , I keep my table clothes here .
This is another small island .
I have , I use it when I film here in this area .
It is kind of small but sometimes I can still manage .
I have more spices here and this one is also covered , you can clean it if it's very common to ingredients from the kitchen .
If you know , you can write down in the comment section .
And here I have my kitchen towels .
These are the ones that I use most .
So they are on top .
And here I have uh some part of the a collection and this is the famous dining area we eat here .
And I also used to make my menus in here .
I tried my best to show my kitchen and my utan seals a little bit .
I have lots of places to put , even though inside the cupboards can be updated for easy using , hopefully , I might need it later .
But so far I really love my kitchen .
It's a bit part time and I film because I'm all over the kitchen island and I back to the store filming with my camera going everywhere with the light and everything .
Feel it a bit squeezy because of the filming .
Otherwise I think it is reasonably big enough for a small family and that's it .
I really love my view if you have any questions , uh , you can ask me .
I'm on my way with new recipes from this kitchen as well as uh planning new , excited trips to the Black Sea region to discover more new cities .
I'm very excited .
I can't wait to begin our trip .
They are also in a kind of a big moment for my daughter because she's gonna take an exam for the university this Sunday .
Please do pray for her .
Uh I hope she's not gonna hear it .
I think she would watch watch later because she's still studying .
It's really a big test for two days .
There are like millions of teenagers wanting to go to the university .
She did her best .
Uh I'm very proud of her and so that's it .
This is from me for now .
Stay tuned for the ice cream recipe and more so .
Thanks for watching .
I hope to see you in another delicious Turkish food recipes and travel vlogs .
