And, Perihan sez
this Pomegranate Sauce and Marinade is especially good with poultry
from 'Honey, what's cooking...'

Sahrap Soysyal wins another
food 'Oscar' --
this one in Peking!

Our mama (the best cook we knew until we were 35) acknowledged three great foods in the world -- Chinese, French, and Turkish. And when she, at age 65, turned over Thanksgiving and Christmas meal preparation duties to her Turkish daughter-in-law, Perihan, it was both a generational passage and a high compliment.

The awarding of a second food 'Oscar' to Sahrap Sosyal at this year's book award ceremonies in Peking is a 'high compliment' to the nth-degree. Sahrap Hanım won her first food-Oscar in 2004 for her book, Bir Yemek Masal (A Food Fable) -- in the category of Best Local Food Book in the World. This year she won the International Gourmand World Food Book Award for her book Sevgilim, Aksama Ne Pisirdin? (Honey, what's cooking for dinner?).

Sosyal, whose book was in competition with about 54,000 other food books published this year, was extremely happy to bring the award back to Turkey. But she's also a little miffed by the generally low number of food books produced yearly here, and, when she was interviewed at the airport upon her return from China, she had a little jibe to make at lazy Turkish chefs, "Lately, our neighbors [read 'Greek neighbors'] have been taking our historical food kitchens and writing about them as if they were their own. I'm trying to introduce our Turkish foods to the world by participating in these Food Oscar award ceremonies. I wish other Turkish cooks/chefs would join in with me."
