Product description

"A visual feast, this cookbook and its colourful images of Turkey and its people will no doubt inspire more than a few cooks away from the kitchen and onto the next plane to Istanbul.' - Australian Gourmet Traveller 'Experience Turkey first hand through stunning photos and authentic recipes' - delicious. Take an evocative journey into the diverse cuisines and culinary customs of regional Turkey. Turkish food traverses the extremes of sophistication - from the refined cooking of the Ottoman court to the rustic simplicity of peasant food. Food and travel writer, Leanne Kitchen, has roamed the country armed with her camera, keen sense of observation and passion for all things culinary. From spicy red lentil kofte and slow-roasted lamb with pomegranate juice to rose cream meringues and Turkish coffee custard, Leanne unveils not just the inspiration for her collection of authentic and contemporary recipes but the very essence of Turkish hospitality."
