Well, I'm an experienced cook and cookbooks reader. If I were a different kind of person, I might say that this book made me a great cooking lover. But I've been a cooking lover for many years. And yet. This book is not only a collection of recipes but an amazing introduction to the realm of Turkish cuisine and an examination of the widely diverse food domains we inhabit.

If you like Turkish or Middle Eastern food you'll probably love this cookbook as much as I do. So many delicious recipes. Salads, soups, breads, vegetables and meats. There is something here for everyone. One of my favorites is Ispanak Kavurma or Sautéed Spinach with Yogurt-Garlic sauce. I've had several friends who despise Spinach in any form devour this dish and return for seconds! Although this book isn't new it's still well worth purchasing. I highly recommend it.

One of the first things I did after visiting Turkey was to buy this lovely cookbook.

Great Turkish recipes, beautiful photographs. The Sultan's Kitchen is actually rather difficult to read (fine grayish print on glossy tinted paper--not a great design decision), but the vegetable recipes, in particular, are very good.

I have been so pleased with this library discovery. So many great recipes, with lots of vegetarian options. I've been able to recreate many dishes that I crave from my favorite Turkish restaurant. The Sultan's Kitchen is now part of my permanent collection.

A beautiful book with wonderful recipes. Some ingredients are more difficult to find in rural America, but luckily we have the internet.
