Turquoise: A chef’s travels in Turkey  is a sumptuous cookbook filled with gorgeous travel and food photography.  I dream of traveling to Istanbul and I love to cook, so you can imagine how weak in the knees I became, when I glanced through the book at the local bookstore.

In the introduction, Greg and Lucy Malouf write, “It’s a land washed in brilliant white sunshine, where a deep blue sky merges with a green sea to create a distinctive and memorable turquoise.”  

Filled with vivid prose and coupled with stunning photography by Lisa Cohen and William Meppem, this gem is worth taking a look at on your next visit to the bookstore.

Happy Monday!  Here’s to you having a joyous and brilliantly creative week.  Cheers!
