"A lot of the dishes at Stanbuli are traditional, some are interpreted and others have been inspired," says Kasif. "These are Turkish flavours but as far as I know have never been a composed dish. Golifa is a Turkish-Cypriot barley mixture that's traditionally eaten as a snack. We affectionately call it Turkish muesli. It's naturally sweet and savoury, but we've dressed ours up. The parfait is savoury yet sweet, too. The barley mixture just pops with textures that have resistance but are fresh and juicy." Start this recipe at least six hours ahead to freeze the parfait.
