You say that your posting has been light, but even by your extraordinarily high standards, you have excelled yourselves by giving us a powerful taste of Turkey. I thought that David's photographs also reached new heights of creativity.
Thank you both for an enjoyable Turkey trip series.

Sounds like a great combination of tastes. I like how they are eating off a newspaper, not afraid to get a little messy while eating!

You must be sure to share your food secrets and finds in Istanbul!

I was in Istanbul in 1991 and only again recently in April. I loved it 20 years ago and I think I am even more enamored this time around. Can't wait to go back.

This is a great summer food. Refreshing and tasty. Reminds me of a photo that I encountered recently: http://foodporndaily.com/pictures/watermelon-grilled-sweet-corn-peppered-bacon-feta-and-basil-salad-with-chile-oil/

shida - you and I both.

Thanks spondoolix -- this is by no means the last Turkey post.

Hi Marts -- watermelon and green Persian melon (something like the honey melons here but much more fragrant and juicy) with white feta-like cheese is a pretty common mezze (kind of an appetizer) in Turkey's summer. The combo works great -- the salt of the cheese plays off the sweetness of the melon.

Mark - this is common ... you'll often see guys at teahouses eating their 'take-out' breakfasts (from somewhere else) on a newspaper.

hockman - food secrets to come ... but in the meantime you'll find plenty on http://istanbuleats.com . Those guys know their stuff!

Thanks for the link, Deniz. I agree -- we couldn't get enough of melon and cheese during our trip.
