A Chef's travels in Turkey
  jhawn | Jul 31, 2017 |
I remembered seeing this at a friend's house six years ago, so when it was confirmed we were moving to Istanbul, I knew my researches would have to include a copy of this book.
While it is a selection of recipes it is really much more - a combination travelogue/food p*rn/recipe book it is beautiful and inspiring and will have something for any foodie reader, whether they are already a knowledgeable lover of Turkish cuisine or have yet to discover this wonderful food universe.
