- What’s On
Published twice a year, Cornucopia is the magazine for connoisseurs of Turkey. Now celebrating its 30th anniversary, this independent publication – gorgeous enough for the coffee table, serious enough to be found in academic libraries – is an ever-growing compendium of all things Turkish: history, culture, art, food, travel.
The arbiter of taste Tyler Brûlé has called Cornucopia in the FT ‘a cross between The World of Interiors and National Geographic, with a gentle Turkic twist’. For The New York Review of Magazines, ‘It’s a truism that the measure of a travel magazine’s success is whether it makes you yearn to visit the destinations it depicts. Cornucopia goes one better. It is a vacation in itself.’ For the blog Quintessence, ‘Cornucopia is indeed an apt name for this publication of plenty, overflowing with Turkish beauty, inspiration and edification.’
Cornucopia has joined forces with the digital publishing platform Exact Editions to offer individual and institutional subscribers unlimited access to a searchable archive of fascinating back issues and every newly published issue. This brand new resource is available cross-platform on web, iOS and Android and offers a comprehensive search function, allowing the title’s cultural content to be delved into at the touch of a button.

The astrophotographer Tony Hallas spent an idyllic childhood in 1950s Turkey, where he first marvelled at the night sky. On his recent return, he found hulking cruise ships and Disneyfied destinations. Here, in the first of two articles, he looks back at the Turkey he left behind, and evocative family photographs capture a world waiting to be discovered
Once ubiquitous and widely valued for its medicinal powers, the medlar has been neglected for more than a century as it calls for patience and cannot be mass-marketed. So take advantage of this ambrosial amber-coloured fruit wherever you find it – in street markets, in country gardens or in the wild. Text and photographs: Berrin Torolsan
Six millennia before Stonehenge, the dawn of the agrarian revolution came to the now arid Anatolian steppe – and with it came Göbekli Tepe, perhaps the first place of worship built by man. With its T-shaped columns and menacing animal carvings, it is an unacknowledged wonder of the ancient world. But who built it? And what went on here? By Barnaby Rogerson
