Despite already having a large number of middle eastern recipe books, this is a welcome addition to my collection, presenting a wide variety of tasty dishes from what in my opinion is one of the world's best cuisines. Highlights for me include the muhammara dip (though the recipe here oddly does not included roasted red peppers), manti (a ravioli like concoction, here with chickpea filling rather than the usual lamb), lahmacun (flatbread with spicy lamb and tomato topping), and a shish kebab served on a bed of flatbread pieces covered with a tomato sauce and yoghurt.

It's well presented and recipes are easy to follow, though the photography is a little overdone in that each recipe has, apart from a large picture of the finished dish, several more photographs mixed in amongst the text for the method, which may ostensibly be demonstrating stages the cooking process albeit there's not really anything difficult here so I'm not sure they warrant it. Recipes are given English titles rather than the Turkish names, though the latter are provided in the introductory notes. Ingredients are for the most part widely available, though the occasional item such as kadayif shredded pastry will be difficult to come by unless you have a local middle eastern deli. Nutritional quantities are given, along with number of servings for each recipe, but they lack an indication of preparation and cooking time in the summary.

Its a shame that this book is now hard to find. I live in a part of north London with a large Turkish and Turkish Cypriot community, so I eat this cuisine regularly. Its good honest and healthy food and you don't need a barbecue or "ocakbasi" for everything. A grill or grill pan will do. There's plenty of veg dishes too. Recipes are easy to follow and well photographed. Even if you can't get this book, try another.

Brilliant cookery book. It looks wonderful, everything is really well explained and - most important of all - all the recipes that I've tried have been a success. One of my favourites, definitely worth every penny.

Worth the money, a great hardback with lovely photographs. As well as traditional recipes it gives a good background of the culture and customs surrounding Turkish food. A lovely addition to any cook book collection.

The reason I have given this book a five star rating is because it is very informative easy to understand and also illustrated very well.
