Black Sea : dispatches and recipes, through darkness and light / Caroline Eden ; [food photography Ola O. Smit ; location photography Theodore Kaye].

Eden, Caroline, (author.). Smit, Ola O., (photographer.). Kaye, Theodore, (photographer.).


"This is the tale of a journey between three great cities--Odessa, built on a dream by Catherine the Great, through Istanbul, the fulcrum balancing Europe and Asia and on to tough, stoic, lyrical Trabzon. With a nose for a good recipe and an ear for an extraordinary story, Caroline Eden travels from Odessa to Bessarabia, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey's Black Sea region, exploring interconnecting culinary cultures. From the Jewish table of Odessa, to meeting the last fisherwoman of Bulgaria and charting the legacies of the White Russian emigres in Istanbul, Caroline gives readers a unique insight into a part of the world that is both shaded by darkness and illuminated by light."--Provided by publisher.
