We just returned from our best food-focused vacation - a two week trip to Turkey and Morocco. One day, we took a food tour with a company called IstanbulEats. It was incredible. Now, I want to recreate some of those flavors at home. What stores carry ingredients from Turkey, Syria, etc? I'm thinking of pepper paste. One day, we had these wonderful meatballs that were served with a tomato sauce that was flavored with this pepper paste. Normally, I think of tomato sauce as being very sweet, The pepper paste had a bitterness that countered the sweetness of the tomato. It was truly mindblowing.
So where can I get some?
