I once created a cooking class, called 'Zen in the Kitchen'. Then wrote a book called the same. Then started the group with that name and the blog came after. All this happened in Turkish. Now is the time for the English version of it. Let's see what will cook here!

It's summer time. Working people are planning for their holidays. Ayvalik is in so many people's list, because of it's waters, food, history... Ayvalik market is a must to see. The weekly farmers' market.
This is one of my favorite sweets, special to Ayvalik. It's called 'lor tatlisi', sweets made with ricotta style Turkish 'lor' cheese. Güler Pastanesi is the place to have them, especially with their mastic icecream.
Ayvalik has so many specialties. The seafood, olives, oliveoil, cheeses, special toasted bread filled with cheese, tomatoes and cold cuts if you prefer, called 'Ayvalik tostu'. If you'll ever visit Ayvalik, I'm sure you'll taste them all.
