Your website has been a lifesaver! I live in Turkey and am married to a Turk and your site was detrimental to me when learning to cook Turk yemek. Thank you for posting in both languages - it's a great way for me to double check the Turkish instructions my mother-in-law gives me in my native tongue. Cok, cok tesekular ederim!
