Yashim Cooks Istanbul

by Jason Goodwin


Inspired by his popular Yashim detective series of books, in which the lead crime-solver is also an amateur Ottoman Empire chef, historian Jason Goodwin weaves recipes from his fiction—Yogurt Soup With Rice and Mint, Assassin’s Steak Tartare, Fig Pudding—into this five-chapter masterpiece. The result is a feast for the sense, fit for Topkapi Palace!
