Turkish Coffee and homemade Turkish Delight from my date with @megster earlier today. As coffee goes it's pretty full on. Strong as hell and thoroughly moreish. And, whilst I've always felt that Turkish Delight was a treat in this country generally reserved for enjoyment by dads, this was a delightful incarnation of it. Whilst quite sweet, it was pleasantly heady with rose and had a set texture which was slightly stickier than a jelly but not so gooey as the one you'd be used to made by Fry's.
Fun fact: 'that ad' from the 80's for Fry's Turkish Delight which was full of Eastern promise, Dunes and sultry people and whatnot was filmed at Shepperton Studios which is where the Space Jockey's downed ship in Alien, parts of 2001:A Space Odyssey, Star Wars and Blade Runner were all shot too! #datenight #turkishcoffee #coffee #turkishdelight #alien #starwars #stanleykubrick #bladerunner
