Did you know you can now buy that staple of Turkish street food the ‘Simit’ in New York?

Not only that but two rival simit bakeries are apparently battling it out for dominance of the embryonic US simit market – see picture above.

Now we are just waiting for Delia’s simit recipe to hit the next cookery book.
