Seljuk Cuisine: A Chef's Quest for His Soulmate
In Seljuk Cuisine, Omur Akkor looks at the cuisine of one of the earliest empires to come to Anatolia, the Seljuks. Through storytelling and history-rich recipes, Akkor shows how deeply food was intertwined with everyday life during the Seljuk period. Akkor's narration provides a window into what the Seljuks are in their dervish lodges and palaces, in their markets and homes. Then he lists many of those recipes, so that you can eat the same food the Seljuks ate many centuries ago.
