Caroline Eden : Black Sea
June 15, 2019 at 7:45 pm - 8:45 pm
Caroline Eden tells the tale of a journey between three great cities – Odessa in Ukraine, built on a dream by Catherine the Great, through Istanbul, the fulcrum balancing Europe and Asia, and on to tough, stoic, lyrical Trabzon in north-eastern Turkey. With a nose for a good recipe and an ear for an extraordinary story, Caroline travels from Odessa to Bessarabia and on to Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey’s Black Sea region, exploring their interconnecting culinary cultures. From meeting the last fisherwoman of Bulgaria, to tracing the legacies of the White Russian émigrés in Istanbul, Caroline charts a totally fresh course while giving readers a unique insight into a part of the world that is both shaded by darkness and illuminated by light. Meticulously researched, and like no other piece of travel writing, Black Sea is a biography of a region, its people and its recipes. Packed with vivid photography, it documents unprecedented meetings with remarkable individuals and features recipes inspired by meals, meetings and literature. A wonderful tour de force.
