Full description for Turquoise
Greg and Lucy Malouf delight us yet again, bringing their own inimitable blend of food and travel writing to the Turkish culinary landscape - one which remains curiously unexplored by many in the Western world. In `Turquoise`, Greg and Lucy journey through a land where the rich diversity of climate, countryside and architecture provide a fitting background for an equal variety and richness of cuisine. Join them as they visit spice markets and tiny soup kitchens, taste fish sandwiches on the Bosphorus, enjoy Ottoman banquets in fine restaurants and drink chai in ancient tea houses. Inspired by the foods they discover along the way, some of the recipes in `Turquoise` are classics, such as Slow-cooked Lamb with Quince; Dumplings Filled with Cheese and Mint; and Sticky Pistachio Baklava. Many more spring from greg's unique talent and imagination, which combine here to create dishes like Spicy Red Pepper Soup with 'Hamsi' Toasts; Braised Wild Greens with Lemon; 'Tulum' Cheese Salad with Roasted Walnuts, Rocket and Mint; and, Clotted Cream Ice Cream with Apricots and Fresh Honeycomb. Turkey is a fascinating land, teeming with memories of Sultans and harems, of Byzantine churches and Seljuk mosques, of ancient kingdoms and cities long gone to dust. Gorgeous photography brings the engaging stories and exciting cuisine to life. In `Turquoise` you will share the Malouf's unforgettable journey and discover an extraordinary world that will surprise and delight.
