30 DAYS, 30 DISHES – DAY 14: Kokoreç


Kokoreç is a popular street food in Turkey – one that I’ve not yet been brave enough to try and I don’t think I ever will!

Kokoreç is made from sheep intestines. The intestines are cleaned then packed onto a large skewer and cooked horizontally over a coal fire, giving it a unique taste. The smell of it cooking is very strong and puts me off even more!

After it is cooked, it is carved off and finely chopped up into pieces then squished in between a half or quarter loaf of bread and eaten like a hot sandwich. Ayran is usually the drink which accompanies this feast!

  1. I tried this stuff before I knew what it was. I just figured it was some kind of meat. I’d been eating it for a few months when I learned that it was intestines, and started wondering how well-cooked it might be, but by then it was too late — I really liked it!
