‘Secrets of the Turkish Kitchen’ – Angie Mitchell.
Angie, like many other visitors and residents of Turkey; has had to suffer the gap between wanting to cook Turkish dishes and the lack of cookbooks that actually gave the right ingredients, quantities and timings.
Being a superb cook herself, with experience of everything from sailing the Pacific to catering to hungry hordes of archaeologists in the most basic of camp conditions, she decided to write the definitive, loving book about Turkish food herself.
With the help of other dedicated cooks inside and outside Turkey, the recipes have been tested and re-tested, to give the near foolproof guidelines to new and old hands of the Turkish kitchen. ‘Secrets’ is a delightful book, with the paintings of Sarah Carter decorating each page alongside the little gems of comments and tales of the kitchen. It is definitely a book to give as well as to have one in your own kitchen shelves.
The first edition is in hardback, and available in Bodrum bookshops and even a local hypermarket. It is published by the fledgling Citlembik Publishing House in Istanbul.
