Must Eat&Drink
Muhlama: Muhlama (or kuymak, as it’s called in
Trabzon) is essentially a fondue, made with famously
rich Black Sea butter and the addition of cornflour,
giving it a dense, stretchy texture. This scrumptiously
artery-clogging appetizer is typically served with
bread and a spoon to tame the unwieldy strings left
trailing behind every dunk.
Laz Böreği: Similar to baklava, laz böreği is built from
hundreds of layers of flaky filo dough drenched in sweet
syrup. Sandwiched in the middle is a thick layer of
custard made with the same sweet milk that’s put
Black Sea dairy farms on the map.
Pide: Ask five Turks which province has the best
football team or the tastiest simit, and they’ll each sing
the praises of their home region. But ask where to find
the best pide, and there’s no debating it: The Black
Sea’s stuff just can’t be beat. Around the Black Sea,
pide — the Turkish answer to pizza — comes topped
with a hefty slab of butter and a barely-cooked egg,
which together make for a rich dipping sauce.
Tea: It’s hard to walk down a street in Turkey without
seeing locals sipping steaming amber-colored çay from
tiny, tulip-shaped glasses. Pretty much all of that tea
— plus hundreds of tons more grown for export —
hails from the hills around Rize on the Black Sea. The
largest producer, Çaykur, runs a çay bahçesi that
overlooks a literal tea garden. Here you can sample not
just the ubiquitous black tea, but green and herbal
varieties at wholesale prices.
