Ottoman court cuisine vs. Ottoman cuisine[edit]

This article seems to have veered off to being about Ottoman court cuisine rather than Ottoman cuisine in general. It also asserts that Turkish cuisine (is that supposed to be the same as Ottoman cuisine?) was "developed and perfected" in the kitchens of Topkapi Sarayi and then "adopted by the kitchens of the provinces". This may be true, but is a strong claim and needs good historical sources (not cookbooks). --Macrakis (talk) 19:31, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

I've modified the parts of this article dealing with this claim to reduce sweeping generalizations as far as I could but more sources would still be very helpful for increasing the quality of this article. 65.209.197.14 (talk) 23:36, 14 March 2012 (UTC)
