2/4. Chef Yotam Ottolenghi’s culinary journey next port of call is the amazing and vibrant Istanbul. Common practice is to fish from the Galata bridge – so Yotam tastes fish from the waters of the Bosphorus, shops for vegetables and samples street food.
The recipes he is inspired to create include: Turkish pizza topped with spicy beef, pine nuts and a crunchy salad baked in a traditional stone oven, and a casserole bursting with prawns, squid, tomatoes and cheese.
