A great variety of mouth watering dishes in Turkish cuisine which is mostly the heritage of Ottoman cuisine. It is the mixture and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern and Balkan cuisines. Therefore it is impossible to fit Turkish cuisine into a short list.
Anatolia is blessed with varied climate which allows the country to get almost everything on its land. Turkey is one of the few countries in the world that has been self sustaining, producing all its own food. Turkish cuisine traditionally is NOT spicy, except in the southeast part of the country, where preparations can reflect a hot Middle Eastern(Arabic) food influence. But now in evertwhere you are able to find restaurants that sell that kind of spicy dishes
