Tulum a much acclaimed modern Turkish restaurant in Melbourne, awarded in 2018 its first Chefs Hat by the Melbourne Good Food Guide, is the creation of one of Australia's most exciting new chefs, Coskun Uysal. With 7 chapters representing the 7 diverse regions of Turkey, each with their own seasonal ingredients, this handsome cookbook captures the essence of Tulum's delicious modern Turkish cuisine. Every 3 months Tulum's menu moves to a different region of Turkey, and now this book allows the home cook to create delicious simple yet refined dishes for all of the 7 regions. Tulum takes traditional, usually Anatolian, recipes and gives them contemporary twists using modern techniques. Coskun's Australian diners can now appreciate the varieties and rich traditions of Turkish cuisine, which is a far cry from its old image of dips and kebabs.
