Recipes from the Heart of Turkey, Seal, Rebecca, Hardcover
The food of Istanbul is as rich, colourful and multilayered as the ancient culture that created it. Rebecca Seal successfully manages the unimaginable: bringing it to us in its full magnificent glory. Walk the streets of Istanbul and you ll see a city of wonderful contradictions: step out of a stylish modern bar and you're likely to turn a corner and find lamb kebabs roasting over coals on a tiny food cart, in the shadow of towering minarets. This fascinating place, where East meets West and Europe borders Asia, inspired Rebecca Seal and Steven Joyce to create Istanbul, a food tour of the city. From simple meze dishes to fragrant Ottoman-era stews, this book is full of delicious recipes! Istanbul is a colourful and exciting gastronomical jaunt around one of the world s most fascinating cities.
