Yashim Cooks Istanbul covers the full spectrum of Turkish cookery, from simple meze and vegetable dishes to meat, fish and puddings. Good in the kitchen, good on the table, it will draw the reader into the extraordinary atmosphere of old Istanbul. Imagine you could step back into Yashims world. Imagine that the flavours and colours of old Istanbul could come to life. Yashim Cooks Istanbul is about time travel and you dont have to leave your kitchen to make the trip.
