Guests can savour the tantalising scents and flavours of Turkish cuisine at Tasek Brasserie Restaurant, Radisson Hotel in Bandar Seri Begawan, until November 5 for dinner from 6.30pm to 10pm.
The Turkiye Cultural and Culinary Week Festival offers a delicious range of Turkish specialties curated by Turkish Chef Adem Can to further enhance the authenticity of its flavours.
The delectable dishes include Turkish Humus, Dalyan Köfte – meatball rolls with puree dish, Ispanakli Tavuk Sama – a mouth-watering spinach stuffed chicken dish, revani or sweet semolina pastry with nuts, the Sütlü Incir Tatlisi or fig dessert with milk dish and many others.
Guests can indulge in the flavours of Turkish cuisine while enjoying mystical performances of the Turkish traditional Nay music, water ebru painting and Turkish tazhib art to set the mood for a unique culinary experience.
In an interview with the Bulletin, Chef Adem explained that the dishes for this food promotion are from Turkiye’s traditional recipes in accordance with the recently published recipe book by Turkiye’s First Lady Emine Erdoğan on traditional Turkish dishes. “This menu is inspired by this book, and you will find traditional dishes here,” said Chef Adem.
Explaining more about traditional Turkish cuisine, Chef Adem said that the dishes are of a mixed harmony from the Bulkan, Middle Eastern and Caucasian regions which inspire the tastes of each of the dishes.
One of the main dish highlights that guests can look forward to during this food promotion, said Chef Adem, is the Turkish doner kebab.
“This is something very traditional and very common in Turkiye. It’s been specially marinated and prepared for three days,” said Chef Adem. The Turkish chef added that the food promotion is a kind of teaser to what Turkiye has in store, and if guests really enjoy Turkish food and would want to try something more intense and of a bigger variety, they should visit Turkiye to experience more of it.
Meanwhile, General Manager of Radisson Hotel Brunei Darussalam Miriam Wolber said after more than a year of disruptive events, the hotel is delighted to have this opportunity to collaborate with the Embassy of Turkiye in Brunei Darussalam and creating enjoyable dining moments for their guests.
“We are excited to promote Turkish food and culture as this will give the opportunity for everyone to get a taste of Turkey in Brunei,” said Miriam.
