A Kófte inspired youth...!
« on: September 05, 2009, 02:06:51 PM »
After a few beers on the way back from the office last (Friday) night, can you imagine the delight on my face when I walked into the kitchen only to be met by that very familiar smell of Kófte wafting around the room?

OJ - 15 going on 20! - had found the recipe on www.petersommer.com, been shopping and bought the ingredients and was in the process of moulding these into the perfect shape we saw so many times over the last two weeks in Kalkan

With a simple salad, including a bit of chilli and a bit of onion they went down a treat and the smell was identical to the one that would hit you in the face in many places and especially up at the Mediteran. I was chuffed to bits - not for me, but for OJ.

For a lad of 15 to be inspired enough to do that is a real tribute to him. I know he enjoys cooking and has done extremely well at school recently in this subject, but I think it's nice in "this day and age", when so many other bad things go on with youths of today, that he had the drive to get on and do it.

It made our holiday dream last just that little but longer, which I guess, deep down, was his intention.

Good on 'im!

Wasn't it just, Claire!  I'm hoping tonight he will have moved on to Mussakka's Surf 'n' Turf, but that may be wishful thinking!

Can you send him to mine please?  I like the idea of a resident chef - especially one whose speciality is Turkish.  Of course the other bonus is that because he's only 15 I wouldn't even have to pay him national minimum wage.   >:D

Seriously though, what a good lad.

I think the only place he wants to go is back to Kalkan! He keeps talking about it and that's something he has never done before. I suppose we will have to go?! He wants to do exactly the same again. I feel 37" shorts coming on!!

My son 17, was also bitten by the Kalkan bug and we have now been back 5 times and are planning next summer's trip. He based his GCSE food technology on Turkish food and got an A grade. He has since moved on to AS level food tech. and has continued to enjoy cooking and eating turkish food.
Reading some of the other threads on the site recently it is nice to know that there are plenty of kids who do enjoy Kalkan for the food, culture and wonderful people.
By the way if your son is doing Food tech. at school so many of the restaurants in Kalkan helped my son with photos, information etc.
