The key to great, authentic Turkish kebab is in the quality of the meat and the flavor imparted by the marinade. Meat is marinated not only to tenderize and for the perfect taste, but also to get rid of some of the gamey flavor.

    We would LOVE to come down from Heber Springs for your festival! As I’m sure you know, the ethnic food choices here are minimal at best. The only problem is that my entire family are vegetarians and are far as your menu goes it looks like you have just one hot dish (appetizer) that we could eat besides the salads.

    Allah Bağışlasın (hope that’s correct for God Bless). 🙂
