Sunday Cooking Time!

8 07 2014

Continuing with the Turkish theme in my cooking and not having eaten the huge zucchini I had bought a week ago, this Sunday I decided to go for a kind of Turkish pancake “mücver” which in the recipe was described as “oyaki” but it was more like “okonomiyaki“.

First things first.

The recipe called for two zucchinis but one was more than enough.

Gorgeous food. The wine is one of my favorites, as well. 🙂

The striking similarity of this Turkish dish to the Japanese okonomiyaki was quite interesting!

Love the zucchini pancakes! Very impressive. Are the Clos du Val and Carmax the same bottle??!! As a young cook Jody won a national cooking contest sponsored by Clos du Val. They flew us out to California for a week of wining and dining. It was great. They used to have a bottling called “Briarcrest” that was amazing. Ken

Thank you, Ken. The Carmax label is on the front of the bottle of Clos du Val and for this project, the “Clos du Val” label is being pasted on the back of the bottle. If you look closely enough, in the first pic, you can see what appears to be a small section of a white label which happens to contain information such as the importer, the type of wine, etc. that normally comes on the back of the bottle.

Hope you’re following what I’m saying which sounds gibberish. ^^
