Turkish Bread (“Ekmek”) is a staple part of the Turkish Culture and household. Aromas of freshly baked bread from our Mahmutlar Bakeries is so appetising. Fresh bread is baked several times a day.
Turkish bread is an important part of the daily meal and is simply torn off and eaten alongside any meal, this delicious bread can be accompanied by Turkish tea, homemade jams and dips.
Bread from the local bakery is fresh and usually made from local flours with no preservatives or additives added. For this reason loaves and rolls need to be eaten quickly as they go stale much quicker than pre-packed processed loaves from the supermarket.
Turkish bakers have always known how creatively use wheat flour. Whether it is to create rings of bread coated with sesame seeds, flaky pastry pouches dipped in syrup or filled flat bread, bakery products are one of the mainstays of Turkish cuisine. But easily the most popular wheat-based product, and the one most often consumed, is ekmek – a light coloured wheat loaf weighing about 350 grams with a distinct elongated shred.
A meal without ekmek is unthinkable in Turkey, whether at home or in restaurants. In towns and villages you will find plenty of bakeries where these golden brown loaves of bread are produced. And for most of the working population, it is a daily ritual to stock up on oven-fresh bread for the evening meal on the way home.
