The Janissary Tree has to be one of the most interesting and informative books I have ever read. The story maybe fictional, extremely interesting and exciting, the author being an expert in Ottoman Empire history. I will read this book many times in the future, may even try some of the culinary delights the main character was cooking up. Just loved every moment, didn't want to put it down - nor come to the end.. Also looking forward to reading more of Jason Goodwin's works depicting this era and his journey from Poland to Istanbul.
