5. Turkish Bazlama

I love Turkish bread of any kind, and this flatbread makes no exception. It’s fantastic when served with soup. Bazlama is traditionally cooked on outdoor stoves over a wood fire in the villages of Anatolia. Still, you can quickly cook the flatbread at home on a good quality heavy-based pan or skillet.
