FAQs about Turkish Catering
Is Turkish food gluten free?
Not all Turkish food is inherently gluten free but there are many gluten-free options available in Turkish cuisine.
Dishes such as grilled meats, salads, and some meze items like hummus, baba ghanoush, and stuffed vine leaves are naturally gluten-free.
Be mindful that some Turkish dishes like börek, gözleme, and pide normally contain wheat-based ingredients.
Is Turkish food halal?
Yes, Turkish food can be halal. Traditional Turkish cuisine often includes meats like lamb, beef, and chicken, all of which can be prepared according to Islamic dietary guidelines.
Planning an Eid celebration or simply want to make sure all your staff are taken care of? When choosing a Turkish caterer, you can filter for halal options to make sure your dietary preferences are accommodated.
Is Turkish cuisine spicy?
While Turkish cuisine is known for its rich and bold flavours, it’s not typically very spicy. The use of spices in traditional Turkish food tends to enhance the taste rather than add heat.
Some dishes may include mild to moderately spicy ingredients like chilli flakes or spicy pepper paste. If you prefer milder flavours, simply let your caterer know, and they can adjust the spice levels according to your preference.
Are there many vegetarian Turkish foods?
Absolutely! Turkish cuisine is incredibly diverse and offers a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan options. From meze platters featuring dips like hummus and baba ghanoush, to stuffed vegetables, salads, and delicious cheese or spinach-filled börek, there is no shortage of vegetarian choices in Turkish food.
When ordering Turkish catering, be sure to inform the caterer of any vegetarian requirements so they can create a suitable menu for your event.
