Walk the streets of Istanbul and you'll see a city of wonderful contradictions: step out of a stylish modern bar and you're likely to turn a corner and find lamb kebabs roasting over coals on a tiny food cart, in the shadow of towering minarets.
This fascinating place, where East meets West and Europe borders Asia, inspired Rebecca Seal and Steven Joyce to create Istanbul, a food tour of the city.
From simple meze dishes to fragrant Ottoman-era stews, this book is full of delicious recipes - try roasted aubergines stuffed with spiced lamb, crunchy fennel salad with radishes and sumac, or chicken with almonds and apricots, and be transported to the kitchens of Istanbul.
Set against the backdrop of Steven Joyce's stunning food and travel photography, Istanbul is a colourful and exciting gastronomical jaunt around one of the world's most fascinating cities.
