4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful cook book., 3 May 2011
This review is from: Turkey (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Leanne Kitchen's Turkish cookbook opens with a short explanation of the idea behind it. She wrote the book on her travels around Turkey, armed with a camera and with no clear plan in mind. This, she says, has resulted in a collection of recipes that she has encountered not so much by design as by coincidence. I do like this approach as, provided that this is an accurate representation of the compiling of the book, it leads to a diverse table of contents with a wide number of recipes of differing types.

The recipes include breads, meze, soups, salads, meats and fish dishes. All are clearly laid out and easy to follow. At this stage, I have only done a couple of recipes (I'm slightly ashamed to say that they were the slightly obvious kebabs and meze elements) but these were successful and *extremely* tasty.

Kitchen also gives a little background to some of the recipes, which may not be to all interests, but I quite enjoy these kind of things. The book is presented as being a road trip, as much as it is a cookery book.

One other thing to note, which is incidental, but pleasing, is that this is an exceptionally pretty book. The photography in the book is wonderful and makes this a joy to browse. It's up to you, of course, how important you think that this is. I enjoyed it, anyway.

All in all, though, this is an excellent and easy to follow cook book. Recommended!
