This book is really excellent and along with the many realistic recipes contained within, there are a great many location pictures showing a lot of places where we had eaten some perfect meals, these photographs help flood back the memories.
This book does not disappoint, it gives an insight in all the methodology behind Turkish food as well as particular herbs and spices used. It really is a great book and this has become a number one in my kitchen. The recipes are not difficult, most are extremely easy to follow and produce and the replication is made easier because there are so many Turkish shops in the UK that one can buy the correct ingredients.
I have rated this book five star and I encourage any prospective purchaser to have NO doubts, this is a truly great book that you will use.
A - book a trip to Istanbul asap and
B - cook all of the dishes, starting with breakfast (non of it looks really daunting) and
C - invite your friends over, for it's such great food for sharing.
No idea why this book was suddenly half-price, but hey, why complain?
