The best carrot fritters in the world!!!

The friendly folks over at Turkey’s for Life asked me to do a seven links post but the lazy days of summer took hold and I promptly forgot. Shulie of Food Wanderings  and Zora of Roving Gastronome reminded me. So here it is:

Your most beautiful post: As much as I love food photography, I consider my most beautiful posts those that also include landscape and outdoor markets. Food and Views- Republic of Macedonia’s Mountain Cheese is one of those posts as is The Tiberias outdoor market, not what you expected. 


The post whose success surprised you: Besides the carrot post (below) I would say Ingera, Ethiopian flat bread. I didn’t think there would be an interest in a food uncommon in most parts of the world.

Your most popular post: From all of my posts The Best Kurdish Carrot Fritters in the World gets the most attention. Perhaps I should use superlatives and explamation marks more often.


Your most controversial post: I try to steer away from controversy but there are always those who will speak their mind as in my post about Baklava. So much for baklava diplomacy.


Your most helpful post: I’d like to think that olive curing got a lot easier after writing The lost art of curing olives.


A post whose success surprised you: Pancakes! The Tastiest Way to Eat Cottage Cheese. Who knew so many people were interested in cottage cheese.


The post you feel didn’t gets the attention it deserved: A year of olives is a personal essay which I hoped would start a conversation.

The post that you are most proud of: Two actually, A recipe of a wandering Jew and Kurdish flat bread and unusual connections. These essays combine culture, family and some of my fondest food memories.

Finally (not part of the 7 links), please visit the Jew and the Carrot to read my article, The roots of lentils, with a recipe for lentil soup.

And about time too! ;) Loved your Kurdish carrot fritters post. And we never thought, before we started blogging, that food could possibly cause controversy. Obviously, we know VERY different, now! :)

I’ve been asked to do this too – it’s a great way to explore articles that I might not have read on your lovely site.

Your carrot fritters led me to the idea of pumpkin fritters which became a great success. Besides your falafel post demystified how these little favourites of mine are being made and now I make them quite often.
And I must also say that I enjoy very much all your market posts.
Thank you for this challenge, I’ll answer to it as soon as possible.

Thank you, Sarah, for nominating my blog! Now I have to look back on my posts… it will be an interesting exercise. Though nominating interesting blogs is never difficult. XOXO

Thank you for passing this along! I too, have let it slip for a few weeks…but now I’m on it! I love reading about your past posts. And so happy to see you writing more for the Jew and the Carrot! Excellent article.
