This book has been written to promote and popularize seafood, and to highlight its significance for human life, beginning from childhood. The author has held a passion for the sea and fish since his childhood, and he is now trying to spread this passion to others by telling the story of “Trilye’s Passion for Fish”. This is not just another book of dull recipes in text format, but rather a feast of experimental recipes accompanied by exclusive photographs of the delicious dishes, as Süreyya Üzmez is as much an author as he is a gourmet, and is someone who knows and reflects the colors of life. Let’s look at our homeland and the seas through his eyes, and see what we can find. This book is the best and the most original of its kind.
“I said we had become tired of the same appetizers; I didn’t say we were bored of them. On the contrary, I long for salted bonito, caught in the entry to the Bosphorus or in the Black Sea when there’s no wind from the south, and for the salted mackerel and mashed roe that have tasted the same for centuries, and to keep them on my dinner table. It is rare to find a menu in any other world cuisine that includes foods varying from salted roasted chickpeas to so many different appetizers that it could possibly be the longest list of food in the world.”
Süreyya Üzmez introduces us to different flavors with extraordinary tastes in his second book “Trilye’s Journey of Appetizers”. Start your journey with brand-new recipes for appetizers.
Trilye is a must stop for foreign tourists, diplomats and ambassadors, along with guests from every province in Turkey. The popularity of the book among our foreign guests who share our passion for fish and seafood led us to publish Trilye’s Passion for Fish also in English.
