We are big fans of middle-eastern food and have a good dozen of cookbooks on the topic (ok… actually more than 40…), from Lebanese to Syrian to Persian. Obviously, we have a few classics about Turkish food, such as Turkey: A Food Lover's Journey, Istanbul: A Journey to the Heart of Turkish Cuisine, or the gorgeous Turquoise: A Chef's Travels in Turkey by the Maloufs. Yet, this one made it right into our favourites as it sets new standards for what a fantastic cookbook can be like!Where many cookbooks are just a list of recipes with some meagre cultural anecdotes here and there, the authors have packed an incredible amount of information about the various regions of Turkey and their foods, the cultures, and the people.** The Form **The book itself is exquisite: a high quality binding with a textile-covered cover, filled with amazing pictures not only of food, but also of people and places. But what really make this cookbook unique is really the verve of the authors whose profound passion for food and traditions transpires through every page. Each recipe comes with an interesting introduction, where the dish came from and which dish is a modern (and practical) interpretation of a traditional or old recipe (because we, modern cooks, don’t have the same time to spend in the kitchen as did the sultans’ cooks).
