Translation required........REALLY SHORT NOTICE.

Post by SillyYak » Wed Nov 14, 2007 11:30 am

I'm off to Istanbul for 4 days on my own TOMORROW and i can't wait. Trouble is i'm a coeliac/celiac. This means i can't eat bread, pasta, biscuits,pastries etc as I am very sick if i eat wheat, rye, barley or oats and derivatives of said grains.

I am learning Turkish at the minute and although i'm getting on quite well with the usual conversational stuff i wouldn't mind learning (on the 5 hour bus journey from Bourgas in Bulgaria) a couple of really useful phrases pertaining to my condition.

If anyone has the following translations for me to jot down i'd VERY much appreciate. Teşekkur edırım in advance:

"Is there flour in this dish"?

"I cannot eat anything prepared in flour"

"I can eat rice, but not rice with pasta" (a popular thing apparently is to put pasta in with rice.........a killer for a coeliac).

"Can you recommend a nice meal without flour"?

"Is the meat dipped in flour before frying/grilling"?

Sorry i've left it to the last minute. Didn't occur to me until a few minutes ago.

Oh, does anyone know the availability of gluten/wheat free bread in Istanbul supermarkets? http://www.colyak.org.tr/ there may be information on this Turkish Coeliac website but my Turkish is not good enough yet to translate.

Any help would be appreciated.

Bu yemekte unlu birşey veya hamur işi var mı?

Unlu yapılmış hiçbirşeyi yiyemem

Pilav (pirinç) yiyebilirim ama içinde hamur işi olmasın

An advice: Keep away from "perde pilavı"

Bana içinde hamur işi olmayan güzel bir yemek tavsiye eder misiniz?

Bu et pişirilmeden önce una (veya unlu bir şeye) bulandı mı?

I have no idea, sorry.
I'll check the http://www.colyak.org.tr/ for you.

Dangerous dishes for you : Mercimek soup, mantı, home made köfte, all kinds of böreks and pides, pastry sweets like baklava, lokma, kadayıf, etc. (hamurlu tatlılar)
Recommended dishes : Any kind of vegetable meals (sulu yemek), and olive oily dishes (zeytinyağlı), grilled kebabs
Actually you'll have a large sellection, good for you.
Be careful, but don't worry too much :) We use flour mostly as outer support in Turkish cuisine, so you can easily detect if any.
