The recipes inspired by their travels capture the enticing flavors that define Turkish cuisine from the ancient ruins of Pergamum to modern day Istanbul. Some are traditional favorites, such as Little Kefta Dumplings in Minted Yogurt Sauce, while many morefrom Roast Chicken with Pine Nut and Barberry Pilav Stuffing to Pistachio Halva Ice Creamare Greg's own, flavored with his years ofexperience cooking Middle Eastern food. With its hundreds of luscious photographs, Turquoise is a chance to share in this unforgettable Turkish journey.

After returning from a trip to turkey I was delighted to find “Turquoise, a Chef’s Travels in Turkey”.
Not only is the book beautiful – the photography is transporting – but the recipes are well conceived and delicious.
Until my recent trip, I had little knowledge of, or appreciation for Anatolian cooking. Since my return I’ve employed “Turquoise” almost every night. I especially enjoy “Pumpkin soup with a yogurt swirl”, “Large mushrooms baked with smoky chile”, and
“Bitter greens, artichokes and shallots with poppy seeds” (I serve it with a poached egg on top). I continue to be impressed and surprised with the recipes. Although I’m not a vegetarian, I appreciate the soups and the vegetable dishes that make a satisfying meal.

Thank you, Greg and Lucy!!!
