Description du produit

Revue de presse

'On a recent visit to a bookshop ... I came across a real treasure, Classic Turkish Cooking by Ghillie Basan, published by I.B.Tauris. This book offers a fantastic introduction to one of the world's most accomplished cuisines and is packed full of recipes which you just know you must try.' --Yotam Ottolenghi

'Suddenly and quite desperately, I want to go to Turkey. The nearest I have been to Turkey in my life has been through eating Turkish Delight, but now I urgently want to eat a whole range of Turkish dishes and to visit the different regions of this fascinating country. The reason? I have been reading 'Classic Turkish Cooking'. This large and beautiful book is written by Ghillie and Jonathan Basan, with Jonathan also responsible for the wonderful photographs throughout the book.' --Lady Claire Macdonald, The Herald (Glasgow)

'…extensively researched and laid out...', '…very evocative and comprehensive' --Food Illustrated --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Foreword by Josceline Dimbleby. Classic Turkish cooking ranks among the greatest cuisines of the world. It has a long and colourful history from its nomadic Central Asian roots to the refined recipes of the Ottoman empire which influenced culinary traditions throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean. In this classic and much-loved work - shortlisted for the Glenfiddich Cookery Award and now published in paperback for the first time - Ghillie Basan presents a unique collection of delicious traditional dishes from the Anatolian heartlands and sophisticated and classical recipes from the palace kitchens of the Ottoman sultans. With its long and rich history, Turkish cuisine has profoundly influenced culinary traditions across the Middle East and the countries of the Mediterranean. 'Included in the A-Z of 'Summer flavours' with recipes from the book.' - Sunday Tribune (Glasgow) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

I ordered this for my wife, and she cannot submit a review on her account, so I will submit what she wrote about the book. The book was promised a week and more away, but it arrived in three days. Also, it was described as "Very Good Condition", with "signs of light shelf wear". It arrived, in fact, in excellent condition, with nothing to differentiate it from a brand new book on a shelf at the store.

Here is my wife's review:
Please Reprint Classic Turkish Cooking

Although few Americans are acquainted with it, Turkish cuisine deserves a reputation as one of the world's finest. As the French and the Chinese do, the Turks use seasonal ingredients to create imaginative contrasts in flavors and textures.

Quite the contrast to the pretentious "Plenty" by Ottolenghi (which I have also reviewed) Classic Turkish Cooking offers the following practical tips to ensure good results:
Table of Imperial and American Measures
Table of English and American Ingredient Terms (courgette vs. zucchini, for example)
Many explanatory paragraphs for ingredients commonly used in Turkish cuisine (Charcuterie, Cheese, Fruit, Herbs, Nuts, Olives, etc), listing regional origins and uses.

The section on ingredients helpfully suggests how to thicken yogurt into a soft cheese, how to choose the type of oil best for the cooking process as well as to complement the other ingredients, and how to choose the best fruit and vegetables. I heartily agree with the authors' suggestion that when cooking with tomatoes, it is better to use good canned tomatoes rather than pale out-of season tomatoes.

The recipes indicate whether the dish is served for special occasions or for everyday fare, whether the preparation is easy or complicated, time-consuming or quick, and they are listed under the traditional Turkish name as well as the English translation. The instructions are well-planned and well-explained. The photographs are as beautiful as they are helpful.

I wish I had this book thirty years ago!

Excellent service with an excellent product!

An outstanding cookbook! It is a rare recipe that is not absolutely delicious. The directions are easy to follow. The pictures make one hungry just to look at them. We have a number of Turkish and Middle Eastern cookbooks and this one is definitely a favorite.

Some great recipes! I can't pronounce half them, but there are a couple go-to dishes in here that are fantastic. My favorite is spicy ground lamb mixed with sautéed onions and walnuts, then topped with a fried egg. Delicious.

Can't wait to try all the pickled recipes. Ghillie Basan does lovely books; I also have her Turkish mezze book and cook from it frequently.

I would highly reccomend this cookbook to anyone wanting to learn about Turkish cooking. I was in Istanbul recently and the local book store wanted over $100.00 USD for it. My girlfriend and I took a cooking class our last night there and when asked about a good cookbook the owner/chef pulled this one off the shelf. It's a beautiful cookbook with great recipes and beautiful photographs. You won't be dissapointed.
