Hello everybody! If you're looking for a great cake recipe, look no further: this is a great one that I found on pinterest - I love the vibrant of the blood orange topping!
I have a board on Pinterest called Recipes I have to try.  'Pinning' interesting-looking recipes onto this board is fun and at the same time by far and away the easiest way to save them without cutting out, putting in a scr...

You just can't help it: if it's the time, then it's the time. And the time right now is for broad beans or fava beans as they say in the US. As the season turns, so inevitably do one's culinary inclinations.. bakla as the...

Spring is just round the corner and bakla or broad beans are appearing in the pazars. Try them zeytinyağlı or cooked in olive oil like this:

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?
