    Review quote
    `A modern Turkish writer with the subtle, steady gaze of Balzac. With quiet brilliance, Asli Perker shows how couples and families from Paris to the Philippines cope with sudden catastrophic loss. And at the heart of the book, balancing loss, there is always food: warming, adding flavour, expressing love and celebration.` Maggie Gee OBE `A funny, moving, clever book which examines the real meaning of family as it explores the true power of food. Delicious in every sense.` Daily Mail `Souffle is as rich and satisfying as its namesake.` Time Out Istanbul `...(Perker) writes movingly about the ageing process, dealing with disappointment, and adapting to major life changes. She also writes very well about dementia and finds humour in Mrs Nesibe's frequent digressions and various alter egos. Like all good books that focus on food, Perker's descriptions of cooking should stimulate readers' taste buds and have them itching to get into the kitchen.` Lucy Popescu, Independent
