Product description

Review

"When you read a historical mystery by Jason Goodwin, you take a magic-carpet ride to the most exotic place on earth." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Goodwin's is a gift akin to that of Jan Morris, the rare coming together of historical scholarship and curiosity about distant places with luminous writing." (Fouad Ajami, The New York Times Book Review)
"What is there not to like about a detective who enjoys cooking as much as he enjoys eating?" (The Financial Times)
"Crammed with mouth-watering descriptions of creamy pilafs and delicate meze." (The Washington Post)
--New York Times Book Review

"The genius of Yashim Cooks Istanbul is how it intertwines brilliant recipes with food-centric passages and nuggets of culture." Delicious Magazine

"The recipes were easy and delicious... and the hummus is the best ever. I'm ... drooling already." Helena Drysdale, Country Life

"This handsome collection of recipes is accompanied by excerpts from the novels that inspired it." The New York Times

"A wonderful book... something unique." Carolyn Hart, editor, Bread & Oysters

"A historical-mystery cookbook filled with enticing recipes from Yashim s 19th-century adventures." The Guide Istanbul

--Delicious/Country Life/New York Times/Bread & Oysters/The Guide Istanbul/Daily Sabah

Shortlisted for Guild of Food Writers First Book Award 2017.
