For those who are wondering, tasty cheese is an Australian term and refers to any well-flavoured or matured cheddar cheese, but I used parmesan as that's what I had on hand. I halved the recipe for a light Saturday night dinner for two. I don't know how 'Turkish' it is, but it's certainly tasty. One hint - it does need plenty of seasoning.
