    A beautiful collection of recipes from the various and varied regions of Turkey. I learned about Musa from Chef's Table and sought out the cookbook he was referring to. I know that with some of Phaidon's other cookbooks the editing has been a little lacking, but I am glad to report I have not found that to be the case here. Masa has dutifully taken the time to rediscover lost dishes and perform culinary field studies, meticulously noting the recipes, and it shows.

I learned about Musa from Chef's Table and sought out the cookbook he was referring to. I know that with some of Phaidon's other cookbooks the editing has been a little lacking, but I am glad to report I have not found that to be the case here. Masa has dutifully taken the time to rediscover lost dishes and perform culinary field studies, meticulously noting the recipes, and it shows. In the book, metric and imperial units are provided, though oil is often measured in fluid ounces instead of tablespoons, which is not my preferred measurement, but is not a slight against the book. The region, cooking time, and number of servings are identified for each recipe. There is also a symbol system to identify what recipes are dairy free, vegetarian, less than 30 minutes, one pot, etc. Recipe instructions are succinct and precise, and a quick blurb is provided for every recipe explaining it's typical uses and frequently overviewing its regional variations. As with Phaidon's other cookery books this book comes with an introduction and brief overviews are provided for every chapter, it does not thoroughly contextualize the Turkish cuisine or culture. Lastly, something that has been mentioned in the reviews of Phaidon's other cookery books, every time aubergine is listed eggplant is written in brackets beside it, both in the ingredients list and throughout the recipe instructions. Chili flakes are similarly accompanied by (red pepper) and chickpeas by (garbanzo beans). This is by no means a deal-breaker, and I had read other reviews that mentioned it but did not seriously consider it. The prevalence of these ingredients, however, and their bracketed form can be repetitive. It is something that could have been listed in the cooking notes. The book itself is beautifully made, with quality paper, binding, and two ribbon bookmarks. Recipes are two to a page, and the photography is wonderful, appearing every few pages opposite the identified recipe. Highly recommended.

    Chef Musa was featured in Netflix's Chef's Table. This can be considered as the most precisely written cookbook based on Turkey(complete with its different regions). Book has been formatted in keeping Phaidon's (the publisher) identity. Chef Musa was featured in Netflix's Chef's Table.

    Missing the overdone glitz and glam of most cookbooks, this book is all about the culture of Turkey and it's many cuisines. Musa Dagdeviren is hero for collaborating and building this cooking tome. Missing the overdone glitz and glam of most cookbooks, this book is all about the culture of Turkey and it's many cuisines.

    A large cookbook with nearly 500 pages, plus neat photos of the dishes, and many of them look and sound really good. Could help break anyone out of a meaningful fast.

    Musa is a chef and an intellectual who's gathered and preserved recipes from across Turkey. His talk about the state of Turkish cuisine was eye opening and his book, by Phaidon is a must.
