Dating back to the time when the nomadic Turks learned to grill and roast meat over campfires, the kebab is now a fast food phenomenon.
Given the numerous types available, it helps to understand that kebabs are categorized by the way in which the meat is cooked. Thus the name ‘doner kebab’ – from the Turkish meaning literally ‘turning barbecue’ – explains the way the meat is grilled by being slowly rotated on vertical skewer.
The unique taste owes more to the fact that the livestock used have been raised in open pastures, than to special marinades. As a result, the source of meat used is of vital importance to the quality of the kebab- a fact which Istanbul Catering passionately believe in.
