Local Turkish women prepared desserts, and even some of those were made with vegetables.

When I was invited to be one of the judges at the Turkish cooking competition at Pacifica Institute in Irvine, California, I was hoping to pick up some cooking tips as well. After all, the contestants were the graduates of a course given by talented cooking teacher Eren Aksoy.Each participant (all were women) could prepare any savory dish she had learned during the course, and could add her own twist.
