What Is? Tavuk Sultan Sarma

 Tavuk Sultan Sarma  is an Ottoman dish of chicken roll with cheese, nuts and greens.

Cuisine was extraordinarily important in the Ottoman Empire. The Topkapı Palace kitchens, called Matbah-ı Hümayun or Matbah-ıAmire, had hundreds of cooks preparing good daily meals for the palace staff of 5000. The Sultan and the imperial family had their own private kitchen which prepared dishes of superior quality and refinement. Tavuk Sultan Sarma is one of the refined dishes that would have been prepared only for the Sultan, his family, and special guests.
