Η πολίτικη κουζίνα είναι μια κουζίνα για όλες τις εποχές του χρόνου, με φαγητά που παρασκευάζονται από φρέσκα και ποιοτικά υλικά, γεγονός που την καθιστά όχι βαρειά και πικάντικη όπως λανθασμένα ίσως πιστεύεται – κάτι που χαρακτηρίζει την Ανατολίτικη και Ασιατική κουζίνα, αλλά απεναντίας ελαφριά και χωρίς τα φρέσκα υλικά της να καλύπτονται από την έντονη χρήση μπαχαρικών.
Αιώνες τώρα τα φαγητά αυτά μαγειρεύονται δίχως πολύπλοκες σάλτσες, εμπλουτισμένα με καρυκεύματα της Άπω Ανατολής σε ισορροπημένες δόσεις, έτσι ώστε να ενσωματώνουν την Ευρωπαική γαστρονομία με τα προσφιλέστερα σε μας στοιχεία της Ανατολίτικης κουζίνας.
