I admit to having gone slightly mad over this book. In a good way. In the last week I've cooked about 6 or 7 recipes from it, some more than once, sometimes 3 recipes at a time. Once you manage to track down the obscure ingredients (turkish pepper flakes being probably the key one) this book is a complete goldmine.

The descriptions alongside the recipes give a really good feel for the cuisine and really show a love for the country, its culture and its food. This is currently my #1 book in the kit

Fantastic!

I have long loved Turkish food, and that was only confirmed by our recent visit to Istanbul. Until now, though, I've only indulged via restaurants, especially the (now defunct, alas) Alanya in Manuka, Canberra. As soon as we came home from Istanbul, I bought this book in order to remedy that.

The book itself is absolutely gorgeous, full of the visual Turkish flavours. So far, all of the recipes I've tried have been successful, and have been quick and easy to make. I haven't had any tro

Although I really don't mind the winter,a sprinkling of sun in the kitchen is a welcome present.
And both the recipes and the photographs (mind you not all the recipes have photographs but most of them...)bring a bit of sunshine in your daily diet. 
The problem with a lot of "international " cookbooks are the ingredients. How does anyone expect you to find some obscure vegetable or an unheard of spice blend? Well,the author gives you alternatives . For instance certain Turkish cheeses are replaced

When I saw the author talking about this book I knew I had to have it. OMG and what a book this is!! The recipes are amazing. I just want to try them all. They are simple and well explained. Love the photos of all the places but would’ve liked to know where exactly they were taken... Also I would’ve loved it if there was a photo for each of the recipes. It is a shame but they are so well explained that I can forgive the author for that. And I really liked the little explanations before each reci ...more

Had some good recipes in it

I did find some of them a little hard to make and to understand since some things are not available in the US or are under different names. Also fellow Americans be sure you can do metric as all the units were in metric.
