Book Description

This book offers a glimpse into the culinary world of Istanbul during the last days of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th Century. Recipes have been selected from original Ottoman cookbooks. The recipes were re-written and tested in the kitchen of the Istanbul Food Workshop to produce dishes suitable for today’s palate while remaining faithful to the original chef’s in tentions, which in many cases was to produce food that simply tasted good. Wherever available original recipes are included for comparison, reference and mere enjoyment.
