The Sultan basically locked a bunch of people in the kitchen who weren't allowed to go outside but were forced to spend their entire lives crafting cullinary dishes and delights. This is the place where for example Imam Bayildi comes from, which in Turkish means that the Imam ate it and fainted from delight.

Go sell your stories somewhere else...

You felt the need to give my post a false label and disregard it without really reading it. It just shows that you are a shallow idiot.

Meanwhile, I hope you continue entertaining the thought that the people of Alashiya "were enjoying different types of coffee". It adds a tinge of humour to your otherwise hate-filled monotone discourse.

What is coffee? God himself ascended to the heavens from the Troodos Mountains you Turkish cock sucking worthless ignorant bum!

Now get out of my sight! :evil:

Crops don't grow in the kitchen with cooks waiting for them to ripen; so what kind of follow on is that for what was being discussed?

Besides, did they re-invent everything Europeans already ate?

Why would the Sultans be so eager to have had Fasulya created by their "imprisoned" cooks when all that dish did was to make them fart all day long and night and stink the place. I mean, how Turkish Delightful was that for the Sultans? :lol:

I didn't discuss the point of fasulya. I discussed the assertion that the Ottomans were "nomads without a kitchen".

Oh, so what are you making up now? That they stopped, pitched up a tent and plumbed in a sink, quick-fitted some kitchen cupboards (with instructions and allen keys) and installed a cooker, an Aga, perhaps?

Turkish food as well as ME foods are very similar to Cypriot food.
Where a dish originated from is immaterial.
Music also is very similar, more so Greek and Turkish music.

To hate and predispose yourself against the Turks is something I can understand. To refuse to acknowledge the Ottoman part of Greek history and learn about everything that happened pre and post 1453 is plain stupid.

Having said that, I'm sure that imagining them as little people with big noses and funny hats on horses helps you sleep at night.

When did I refuse to acknowledge the invading Ottomans in Greek history? A murderous scourge on humanity!

What I refuse to participate in is your romantic revision of history with the Ottomans as some kind of "Fry's Turkish Delight" advert with princes riding around, locks flowing, distributing smiles and gold coins to the poor. Grow up!
