Sunday Cooking Time!

11 06 2014

It’s back!

Having generally had too much to post about my travels recently, I had neglected to do my “Sunday cooking” posts for a very long time but here is something from this past Sunday.

Getting my priorities straight by opening a bottle of red first.

First things first.

Decided on a Turkish dish that was supposed to be made with bulgur wheat but which I could not find.  I used barley instead which is very common in Japan.

The recipe is by Kyoko Ogino from her 『家庭で作れるトルコ料理』 (roughly Turkish cooking at home).

Turkish risotto and wine? It really doesn’t get much better. The meal looks delicious; very fresh and satisfying.

I’ll take a bowl! If you can’t find bulgur, farro can make a nice substitute (the reasonably quick kind) and doesn’t turn mushy. In any event, this looks great. Ken

Farro is not easy to buy either and could possibly be expensive. We don’t produce much wheat (too much rain this time of the year – pretty much rain everyday for about a month except in Hokkaido, the northern island, where there is no rainy season – 65% of our wheat grown there apparently) and most is imported. According to one stats I saw, we come in at 59th place in the world wheat production. The barley tasted OK. 🙂
