It's been hot, mind-meltingly hot. The kind of heat that gives you wet patches on top of your shoulders where the sweat has dripped off your ear lobes. The sort of hot that makes it imperative that you wring out any bra wit...

A few years ago, when our youngest was coming up to a year, I was really struggling to manage to see a way forward to feeling that life made sense in Istanbul. With no support around me, and central Istanbul being a physical challenge with several young children, days often felt like a thing to ...

#Sütlaç is such a traditional #Turkish #milk pudding - funny really because what it is is rice pudding!! You can have it baked too and then it's called #fırınsütlaç.

Story
Tagline
Longtime Turkey resident and keen food blogger
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?
