Product description

Review

Mary Isin has written an amazing work about every kind of Turkish confectionery, pastry, pudding, preserve and ice cream. The recipes are historic ones and the introduction and background text provide a fascinating insight into the Turkish past and the culture that created what is at the heart of one of the richest cuisines. I found it riveting. - Claudia Roden

'The Turks have been famous for their sweet tooth since the days when so many confectioners worked at the Topkapi Palace that they had their own mosque. Sweets permeate Turkish life. Mary Isin has gathered a mountain of information on this rich subject - recipes from the Middle Ages to the present, science, history and folkways. It s a sweet read. - Charles Perry, food historian

'A fascinating and informative exploration of the role of sweetness in Turkish culture over the centuries.' - Laura Mason, food historian and author of Sugar-plums and Sherbet

'This is a history foremost, but there are 70 authentic recipes included showing how to recreate some of Turkey s huge variety of sweets and puddings. What I had to read left me wanting more, it is a superbly written social history, revealing a new dimension to Turkish food and culture.' --Sue Baker, The Bookseller

'Mary Isin has penned a masterpiece in its field. This is a dizzying book that carries us into daily life, social life and the world of customs and traditions.' --Selim Ileri, Zaman

'No wonder Turks were delighted... each chapter in this fascinating and scholarly book is devoted to a different confection.' --The New York Times

'Mary Isin has penned a masterpiece in its field. This is a dizzying book that carries us into daily life, social life and the world of customs and traditions.' --Selim Ileri, Zaman
