Vegeterian Turkish Cooking is the vegeterian companion to Carol and David Robertson's Turkish Cooking. Robertson relates a series of captivating and delightful travel adventures in the first half of the book, unveiling the wonders of Turkey - from the ancient cities of Ankara to the spas at Bursa to the small village bazaars, where fresh vegetables line stone pathways and aged stucco homes. The second portion is dedicated to vegetarian foods and recipes. Over one hundred Turkish dishes, including Spinach with Yogurt Sauce, Eggplant Pureé, assorted Shish Kebabs, Minted Pea Pilav, and the ever popular Baklava, await the cook wanting to explore Turkish cuisine.
David Robertson's photographs transport the reader to this magical country, while Carol Robertson's drawings add a delicate touch to pages that hold the key to the creation of delicious Anatolian fare. The Robertsons share their love of Turkey and their passion for its people, culture, and traditions through writing, art, and recipes.
