Join us for our exciting new supperclub with a literary twist. Jason Goodwin will be cooking Turkish dishes from recipes within his new book 'Yashim Cooks Istanbul'.
Yashim Cooks Istanbul is a response to fans of 'The Janissary Tree' series who, after following Yashim puzzle over clues whilst cooking up dishes such as Assassin’s Steak Tartare, wanted his recipes. The book contains easy, traditional Turkish recipes that bring the flavours and colours of Istanbul to life, alongside more unfamiliar recipes for feasts.
Jason will be preparing recipes inspired by Yashim, while talking us through the dishes. Aside from the deliciously prepared meal, this will be an intimate evening where guests will be able to converse with Jason, enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and receive a signed copy of the cookbook. 'The Janissary Tree' series will also be available to buy in the shop for the author to sign. janissary tree
