"This is an exceptional celebration of an exceptional cuisine: vibrant, diverse and outrageously delicious.  Andy and David's perceptive eyes perfectly capture the essence of one of the world's greatest culinary capitals." Yotam Ottolenghi

In this breathtaking new book, intrepid food and travel writer Andy Harris and photographer David Loftus reveal the wonderful tastes and exotic allure of Istanbul, one of the world's most fascinating cities.  Part cookbook, part travelogue, they meet the characters behind the intriguing food of the city - artisan bakers, traditional chefs, fishermen and street food vendors, to name a few.

Over 90 delicious recipes reveal the heart and soul of Turkish cuisine and range from breakfasts through no salads, soups, easy lunches and fast suppers to celebratory dishes for special occasions.  Enticing dishes include roast chicken and pilaf, imam bayildi, cheese and spinach pide and fried mussel rolls or Turkish po-boys along with classic mezze plates, kofte and delicate honey-soaked pastries.  Simple substitutions are also given for those ingredients that are less widely available.

Vividly illustratd with David Loftus' inimitable photographs and exquisitely designed to reflect the vibrant life and bustling streets of this colourful city, Istanbul will enchant and inspire in equal measure.
