Turkish Lamb Soup

Turkish cuisine we think is one of the best in the world, spoiling us with some of the best dishes we've recently tried (like adana kebap, lahmacun, or baklava). Here we've tried something a little more traditional, that you won't find in that many Turkish restaurants. It's a delicious lamb soup, that lamb meat fans will surely enjoy.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
