The streets of Istanbul are lined with an array of exciting foodstuffs, the heartiest of which are kumpir, the beloved Turkish baked potato. Gigantic potatoes are baked in a wood-fired oven until crispy and then the kumpir-maestro slices the potato in half, adds a generous amount of butter and cheese and theatrically whips everything together with a knife. This mesmerising process takes a few minutes until the ingredients are well and truly combined, giving you plenty of time to decide on your toppings! As well as the traditional cheese, olives, green pepper, pickled cabbage, sweetcorn and biber salcasi (pepper paste) here we’ve got kofta baked beans, garlic yogurt sauce and a refreshing parsley and sumac salad.

Really simple to follow, amazing taste combinations, thankful for the thirty minutes or so of oven time which enabled me to wash up most of the pots and pans.

Glad you loved the flavours in this recipe! Everything looks delicious and we love the patterns on the crockery, and what a plus having time to do the washing up while it's cooking too!


We added a Cucumber Kosambari to the numerious side dishes. Both Kumpir and Kofta Beans were fab, the Biber Salcasi perfectly hot and the Sumac salad just gorgeous. What a feast. The recipe said for 4. For us it did for 6 with leftovers. Nobody could ask for more.
