Product description


'I don't think I've ever been this excited about a book delivery, ever. Caroline Eden has written a masterpiece.' -Olia Hercules

'Witty, wry and wise . a wholly original and vibrant new format . a triumph.' -Historian and author Owen Matthews, Cornucopia Magazine

'The next best thing to actually travelling with Caroline Eden - a warm, erudite and greedy guide - is to read her. This is my kind of book.' -Diana Henry

'Part travelogue, part recipe book, this is a love letter to the sea that welcomes strangers, soaked in colour, history, myth and the flavours of many cultures.' -Nick Hunt author of Where the Wild Winds Are

'Packed with human stories as well as history, giving the recipes a significance and resonance.' -Diana Henry, Sunday Telegraph

'It's her writing - elegant, fluid and as mesmerising as the Black Sea itself - that captures and holds your attention and imagination throughout this journey.' -Julia Platt Leonard, The Independent

'A genuinely erudite dive into the cultures that meet at the Black Sea. Beautiful enough for the coffee table but fascinating enough for the nightstand and useful in the kitchen, too.' -Tim Hayward, Financial Times

'I can't remember the last time I was so enthralled by a cookbook or a travel narrative. The quality of writing is outstanding. And the way the recipes are used to conjure up a sense of history, geography and atmosphere is ingenious.' -Fuchsia Dunlop

'Carefully researched and beautifully written, it's a treat for armchair explorers and cooks with inquisitive palates.' -delicious magazine

'A wonderfully inspiring book about a magical part of the world' -Viv Groskop, author of The Anna Karenina Fix
