It is a treat to watch the pizza bread rising in the oven. Pizza dough with brushed yogurt. The pumpkin dessert was also a treat. Glazed pumpkin which is very sweet. There are so many delicious meze options.

Sorry - I haven't thought about that because I don't eat meat. Turkish food is awesome and has lots of options for vegetarians.
