Turkey. Yogurt and Cheese.

Yogurt is one of the most typical foods in Turkish cuisine. Yogurt has been eaten in Turkey for as long as the country's culinary memory reaches. It's used as a sauce or to refine spicy dishes. Yogurt is made from goats, sheep's or cow's milk and mostly at home. A liter of milk is brought to a boil, simmered for 10 minutes and poured into a bowl. When it's cooled a tablespoon of yogurt is stirred into warm milk and added to the milk in the bowl. Turkish Yogurt should develop in 5 hours, so the bowl covered, wrapped in a cloth and stood in a warm place.
