A Journey to the Heart of Turkish Cuisine
Intrepid food and travel writer Andy Harris and photographer David Loftus reveal the wonderful tastes and exotic allure of Istanbul, one of the world’s most fascinating cities. Part cookbook, part travelogue, they meet the characters behind the intriguing food of the city — artisan bakers, traditional chefs, fishermen and street food vendors, to name a few.
Over 90 delicious recipes reveal the heart and soul of Turkish cuisine and range from breakfasts through to salads, soups, easy lunches and fast suppers to celebratory dishes for special occasions. Enticing dishes include roast chicken and pilaf,imam bayildi, cheese and spinach pide and fried mussel rolls or Turkish po-boys along with classic mezze plates, köfte and delicate honey-soaked pastries. Simple substitutions are also given for those ingredients that are less widely available.
