As the weather gets hotter, my eating habit changes accordingly. I prefer to consume less sauced, cold and light food.
As always, Sanayi 313’s open and dessert buffets are keeping pace with the season. Eggplants, pink tomatoes, wild purslane and crunchy cucumbers occupy the buffet. Dessert buffet on the other hand, looks colorful and attractive as if testing those who are trying to keep in shape.
I began to visit the bazaar in Sarıyer on Mondays and Wednesdays these days. Villagers living around Sarıyer and Bahçeköy are selling the goods that they grow. Since I don’t know the sellers yet, they cannot make sense of the wild purslane quantity I buy. Because I visit Fatih bazaar every week, I have a good connection with the sellers over there. They hide the best products under their counters for me. I need to go to Sarıyer more often to be treated this way. If you have time, I suggest visiting the Sarıyer bazaar. The sellers are very nice. They sell the cucumbers that are just picked out of their gardens.
We went to Bursa with the kitchen team a few weeks ago. We ate everything we found there, pushing our limits. It was a great tour. Our energies exchanged immediately. We all love to go around the bazaars, so we found a very small one and got into it. I found rock salt, which is not easy to find in this cute bazaar. It made me really happy. I use it near the cucumbers and plums in the events that take place in Sanayi 313. It looks great, also very tasty, and easy to use as well. You can either grind it or press it in a mortar.
Rock salt and crunchy cucumbers are our favorites these days!
