Snowpeas or Mangetout with Garlic&Ginger/Sarımsaklı Zencefilli Sultaniye Bezelye
Because I am lucky enough to be able to buy my vegetables fresh from the outdoor markets, I'm thrilled because spring is here!  Nowhere is it more apparent than at the market. Today's market was a little different as we went to Ezine pazarı , about half an ...

If you enjoy salads made from grains - here, bulgur - , I am sure you'll love this one, with the additions of walnuts and tahini!
As the weather dances between deceptively warm and sunny and then freezing cold, knowing what to wear but also what to eat, becomes a tricky issue. Are we into salads big time yet or not? Or are the pulses still winning? ...

I was strolling through GOP (Gaziosmanpaşa) in Ankara, when I came across this sign: Good Earth!  A new shop in Ankara!  The name was intriguing, so I ventured in.  The shop was full of gorgeous te...

Another springtime treat: snowpeas or mangetout done in a quick little stir-fry with garlic and ginger! Try them and see!

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?
