Many years ago I knew an American woman who had married man from Turkey, learned how to cook his customary dishes, and would herself travel to his native land multiple times a year to visit the rug and jewelry markets. One night, while enjoying a dinner party at their home, I was introduced to Moussaka and many other traditional Turkish dishes. It instantly became one of my favorite go-to meals and I have made it several times over the years.
This is one of those foods that you will not want to buy at the food store or at the local grab and run kiosk, once you’ve made them at home. Simple to bang out and a fun project for cold winter days when you want to warm up the house with yummy home cooking.
