    Mantar tavuk guvec Mushroom chicken guvec  This hearty dish can be made in any type of oven-proof pan, but clay or earthenware pots are preferred because they impart a heady, earthy aroma to the stew. The secret to preparing guvec is the slow cooking in the closed pot, which brings out the flavors of all the ingredients. The meat, vegetables and spices are mixed together and placed in the pot, which is then covered with a pottery lid, but today many people use a sheet of aluminum foil instead. Traditionally guvec is baked in a pit oven, but a regular, modern oven works just as well for home cooking.
