Looks good but tastes bad in Food Traditions & Culture Posted September 4, 2007 · Edited September 4, 2007 by sazji (log) ...most supermarket peaches, especially if they have been shipped across the country. ←Oh...I gave up on peaches in the US years and years ago. Even the farmer's market ones were that way...fragrant and beautiful, but you bite into them and they're just mealy. Luckily it's not that way in Turkey. (Yet.) Eat yer heart out. Doddie, I think I've found one more eerie similarity between Turkey and Korea!The "big teaser" in Turkey is chocolate in any but the really good pastry shops. So much so that I've come up with the "Axiom of Chocolate Inversity" - That is, the degree to which a chocolate sauce or other product appears dark and rich is directly inverse to its actual chocolate content." The last victim was a visitor from the states at an actually fairly famous puddinig shop. She fell in love with the muhallebi (an unsweetened milk pudding) with what appeared to be a rich dark chocolate sauce. Despite my warnings she remained unconvinced. Till she actually took a bite that is. They use the cheapest cocoa and possibly food coloring.The real thing *is* available here but I daresy more people than not have never actually tasted a really good chocolate dessert.
