Susan Low

Food writer

A journalist and storyteller with a deep knowledge of her subject, Caroline Eden does food and travel writing with erudition and insight. In this, her second book, she takes the reader on a journey from Odessa, south along the Black Sea coast to Trabzon in northeast Turkey. It’s a cookbook that you can spend blissful ages reading and learning from – “a way to eat the culture and taste the journey”, as the author so aptly puts it. The recipes are stunning too.

Writer and food historian

The uniqueness of this book begins with the unusual cover design. That uniqueness continues throughout the book as the author writes of cities circling the Black Sea, sharing emblematic recipes and history-laced stories.
