It's still the right weather for a good soup! And this is a good one, I promise you! The lemon & egg mix gives it the right consistency as well as taste.
My feet don't seem to have touched the ground these last two weeks what with a photography course, walks, and everything else! Oh yes, we also had the big snow, the worst in 28 years here in Istanbul,followed by some beautifu...

Here's a great little muffin or mini kek recipe for you to make tomorrow - 
date and orange muffins ready for tea! Take one whole orange - yes, skin and all, just minus the pips - and pulverise it in the food processor ... these little muffins aren't moist and full of flavour for nothing; right now...

Hi there! Not sure if this is the right page for me: I live permanently here in Turkey, in Istanbul as a matter of fact... I am English though. Every month I visit the markets to see how the produce is changing according to the season ... so here I am!

Introduction
I've been living in Istanbul with my Turkish husband for years now and when we aren't here, we are in our village house in Assos overlooking the Aegean. I am passionate about the beautiful fresh fruit and veg we get here so visiting the local markets is quite a hobby of mine! I started my blog just over two years ago - the idea was to describe Turkish recipes in simple step-by-step ways and this naturally enough led to a huge interest and development  in my photography. Being English does mean that some of my recipes are of the more familiar variety especially in the Cakes and Cookies category. I have loads of cookbooks and collect new recipes avidly - the internet is a great resource but nothing can beat a good cookbook!

Earlier last year I started leading Walks in the Old City for Istanbul Eats, an award-winning website. These culinary walks take us through the back streets of Eminönü, sampling a wide variety of local street food along the way! Needless to say, getting off the beaten track and all that eating is lots of fun! For me, it's great as the people who come along on these walks are quite delightful, and who would tire of the Old City?
