    Another disk that I enjoy that has Eggplant in it is Moussaka. I always thought that Moussaka was Greek. I'm told that it was originally Turkish, but that the Greeks, Turks, Egyptians and others make regional variations.

    I guess I've only had Greek Moussaka. I can't say that I've ever been to a Turkish Restaurant, really. Been to some places that had "Middle Eastern Cuisine", which I assumed was

    • Hmm. I dunno. I've heard it said that Turkish cuisine is a melange of those from surrounding areas; and that things that it has in common with Greek cuisine are therefore probably essentially Greek in origin. That's not to say that Turkish food isn't highly refined and excellent.
