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.


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!


Which part of "The Ottomans had huge kitchens where they imprisoned entire families which were dedicated to inventing new dishes for the Sultan" implies princes riding around, locks flowing and smiles and gold coins distributed to the poor?

Whatever it is you're seeing in my posts is probably all in your head.

May I ask why the Ottoman Sultans did not care at all for Molohiya/Moloha since ALL Turks in Turkey who do not have any direct connection to TCs at all have never tasted it or even know what it is?

We've also been cooking kolokasi since pre-byzantine times.

This still doesn't mean that coffee was enjoyed in Alashiya as anointed priest and Hoch&Kechler polisher Get Real stated.

...i define coffee this way:

let's say metrio,

"Greek"; modest spoons one to one
"Cypriot"; heaping spoons one to one
"Turkish"; two spoons each one to one

served in a demi-tasse, with or without a cool glass of water on the side.

...any questions?


Kolokasi doesn't come from Egypt it comes from Southeast Asia.

...forgot about this topic. (third item as a result for a search, kolokassi, on Google)

indeed, you are right yialousa, but the root was eaten in Egypt in 2000BC (and most conservatively, 100BC).

...might as well call us South-East Asians, then.

Why?

Are Italians called Chinese for adapting the Chinese noodle into their cuisine?
