Sahi, near the Kılıç Ali Paşa Mosque, Karakoy
Jessica started by brushing over the prepared base of the Turkish delight to remove the paper backing
She carefully removed the paper, assisted by the chef
Jessica was asked to choose from a whole selection of fillings. She chose to use dried apricots and pistachio nuts, with a powdered sugar covering.
First Jessica chopped the dried apricots...
...then she sprinkled the pistachio nuts along the edge of the base...
...and placed the cut dried apricots on top.
The chef helped Jessica in her task
He showed her how to roll the base around the filling
Jessica cut off a section and firmly rolled it together
Then she cut the Turkish Delight into pieces with a huge pair of scissors
And here are the pieces, all ready to eat in their wooden box.
That was such a fun thing to do, and I know Jessica enjoyed the experience. If anyone else is thinking of trying their hand at this, the promotion finishes on March 22, so there are only two more weeks left!
