Turkish Eggs

Turkish Eggs with Greek Yogurt

Turkish eggs, otherwise known as Cilbir, is a luscious dish that uses Greek yogurt. Here’s recipe from Joey de Larrazabal that simplifies it by using a fried egg instead of a poached one.

Turkish Eggs
(Serves 1)

1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 clove garlic crushed
1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt to taste

Infused Butter:
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
Optional, if you want it spicy: 1/8 teaspoon either Aleppo pepper, cayenne pepper, hot paprika, or your favorite chili flakes.

1 egg, poached or fried

  • Stir yogurt, garlic, olive oil, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Melt the butter with the oil in a small pan. Add the paprika (and chili if using) and cook another 30 seconds, swirling the pan to evenly distribute the spices. Set aside.
  • Spread the yogurt mix in a shallow bowl. Place the fried or poached egg on top of the yogurt. Drizzle the infused butter on top.

Optional: you can top with chopped fresh herbs (dill would be the most traditional) if you’d like and/or have them around!

Tip: Turkish eggs, or Çılbır, is traditionally made with poached eggs but I make them with fried as I’m never dexterous enough to poach eggs first thing in the morning!


Very excited about this new product, not only because it is SINFULLY good but also because of our chocolate. We use Auro Chocolate’s Tablea De Cacao, 100% unsweetened, pure cacao. We’re so proud to use local ingredients and we’ve always been fans of Auro’s internationally-acclaimed cacao products.

Our Tsokolate-Eh is velvety rich and silky smooth…luxurious adjectives that are so fitting. It definitely is an indulgent treat, and we warn you: this will ruin all other hot chocolates out there for you. We cook down our milk, sugar, and tablea at a simmer, SLOWLY reaching our desired thickness WITHOUT peanut butter, flour, cornstarch or anything else. Just those 3 ingredients, plus love and patience.

DM us to order! P375 for 500ml in our glass mason jar.

3 Ingredient Flatbread

Make your own flatbreads with just 3 ingredients: yogurt (or in our case, Greek yogurt), flour, and baking powder! The result? Pillowy-soft flatbreads in less than 30 minutes.

We made ours plain because they were going to accompany Fearless Apron‘s Coconut Chicken Curry With Cashews, but you can easily brush these with melted butter and garlic, and a sprinkle of salt for a stand alone, outstanding snack. Tips: We used Greek yogurt instead of regular yogurt because we wanted less liquid. The dough was already so sticky, so we had to keep dusting with flour. Also, there is no salt in the recipe, so this flatbread goes very well with dishes that are full of flavor. On its own we would brush melted butter and sprinkle some flakey sea salt (ooh, the thought just made our mouths water… 🙂 ).For the recipe go here http://ow.ly/A4cV50AID2n

Loaded Labneh

Labneh is actually another name for our yogurt cheese, and is a Middle Eastern dip. So what is yogurt cheese? It’s EXTRA strained Greek yogurt has the consistency of cream cheese, so is perfect for dips!

The simplest dip is often the yummiest. If you have really good quality EVOO (the type that tastes very fruity!), just drizzle a bit over the yogurt cheese, put a bit of salt and pepper (we like using flakey salt so that the salt granules aren’t so abrasive) and voila! Wonderful dip for vegetable sticks, chips, or a spread on pita chips or toasted rounds.

If you want something fancier you can load up the labneh with all sorts of things. We’ve tried lemon zest (you KNOW we love our zester!) with chopped pistachios, fried shallots, basil chiffonade and a sprinkle of paprika! What a gorgeous symphony of colors and flavors, all harmoniously humming together. You can try anything you want really. Just remember to finish off with the best EVOO you can get your hands on, salt, and pepper.

Salted Duck Eggs

People love our idea of our farmer friends’ products available with ours. It’s great to find all this fresh produce in one place. Our newest farm to join us is a small duck farm in Lipa, Batangas. From them we can offer to you salted or fresh duck eggs.

Duck eggs are much richer and fattier than regular chicken eggs. Try using them in an omelet and see the difference in creaminess!
