New book: Turkish Sephardic cookbook

Beyhan Cagri Trock’s The Ottoman Turk and the Pretty Jewish Girl is a Turkish and Sephardic cookbook and a fascinating cultural and culinary memoir of the author’s family. Trock’s Jewish mother (Beti) and Muslim father (Zeki) immigrated to the United States from Istanbul, Turkey, in the late 1950s, bringing with them an incredibly rich culture, history, and cuisine. This book contains their story as well as 101 of the authentic Turkish and Sephardic recipes Beti and Zeki grew up with and cooked at home.
