In Turquoise, Greg and Lucy Malouf visit Turkey's spice markets and soup kitchens, enjoy fish sandwiches on the Bosphorus, and drink in ancient teahouses.

The recipes inspired by their travels capture the enticing flavors that define Turkish cuisine, from the ancient ruins of Pergamum to modern-day Istanbul. Some are traditional favorites, such as Little Kefta Dumplings in Minted Yogurt Sauce, while others, such as Pistachio Halva Ice Cream, are Greg’s own, flavored with his years of experience cooking Middle Eastern food.
