The buffet spread: Start with some traditional Turkish appetisers such as İçli Köfte, bulgur sphere-shaped shells filled with minced beef, onions and walnuts, served alongside Acılı Ezme; a spicy tomato paste served with green chillies, and Humus; mashed Jerusalem chickpeas mixed with a refreshing dressing of tahini, lemon and olive oil.
