In the Sultan’s Kitchen: Imperial Cuisine of the Empire 
In this illustrated lecture, explore the influences of different 
regions of the Ottoman Empire on the imperial kitchens, which often fed 
as many as 10,000 people a day. As the Turks moved towards the 
Mediterranean from Central Asia, the cuisine slowly changed from meat, 
milk, and animal fat to olive oil, fish, vegetables, herbs, and fruits 
from cultivated gardens. Sheilah Kaufman is the author of 26 cookbooks 
including two on Turkish cuisine co-authored with Nur Ilkin (A Taste of Turkish Cuisine and The Turkish Cookbook: Regional Recipes and Stories).  This lecture will be followed by a curator’s tour of The Sultan’s Garden.
