About Peach (Sheftalia) Kebab


This is a favorite Cyprus dish of Turkish Cypriots. The name derived from a misunderstanding. A chief cook named Ali in Cyprus once prepared this very special kebab with excellent delicacy so the dish is named after him: "Chief Ali's Kebab", chief is pronounced in Turkish sounding like "Shef'. "Shef Ali" became "Şeftali" in the course of time: Şeftali means "Peach" in Turkish.


So this dish come to be called "Şeftali Kebab" or "Peach Kebab", served either for lunch or supper following a soup with any vegetable dish cooked in olive oil in the Mediterranean style.
