The Complete Book Of Turkish Cooking: All The Ingredients, Techniques And Traditions Of An Ancient Cuisine
Discover classic and modern Turkish cooking in more than 150 authentic recipes, shown step by step, in 800 sumptuous photographs. (amazon excerpt)
This is a beautiful book, both inside and out. The photographs are amazing and quite enticing. The recipes are as tempting as a cook book can get. They are easy to understand, with most ingredients fairly easy to find at the local grocery store. This manual also delivers great background in Turkish culture as well as it’s cuisine.
I enjoyed the book at once. One of my younger sisters just gave it to me as a Christmas exchange gift and we spent the afternoon going through it and deciding which of the wonderful looking recipes we would try first. (Why do I see a Turkish cook off in my near future.)
