Turquoise by Greg Malouf
Book DescriptionFollowing on from their success with Saha, Greg Malouf and Lucy Rushbrooke delight us yet again, bringing their own inimitable blend of food and travel writing to the Turkish culinary landscape - once which remains curiously unexplored by many of us in the Western world. In Turquoise, Greg and Lucy journey through a land where the rich diversity of climate, countryside and architecture provide a fitting background for an equal variety and richness of cuisine. Join them as they visit spice markets and tiny soup kitchens, taste fish sandwiches on the Bosphorus, enjoy Ottoman banquets in fine restaurants and drink chay in ancient tea houses. Inspired by the foods they discover along the way, some of the recipes in Turquoise are classics, such as Little Kofte Dumplings in Minted Yoghurt Sauce; Slow-cooked Lamb with Quinces; and Sticky Apricots Stuffed with Clotted Cream. Many more spring from Greg's unique talent and imagination, which combine here to create dishes like Roast Chicken with Barberry Pilav Stuffing; Green Olive, Walnut and Pomegranate Salad; Skewered Sweet-spiced Duck; and Pistachio Halva Ice-cream. Turkey is a fascinating land, teeming with memories of Sultans and harems, of Byzantine churches and Seljuk mosques, of ancient kingdoms and cities long gone to dust. Gorgeous photography beings the engaging stories and exciting cuisine to life. In Turquoise you will share Greg and Lucy's unforgettable journey and discover an extraordinary world that will surprise and delight.
