Our storyteller gives illustrated audio introductions to sections of the eCookbook, but it is Chef Channon Mondoux who is the true guide. She has resurrected recipes from the 16th Cenury Ottoman Empire and adapts them for the modern kitchen in easy to print out and use recipes. Yet it’s not simply measurements and cooktimes. She relates the stories behind these recipes, gleaned from obsevations of travelers of the time and from translations of historical texts.

And where you might need extra help, Chef Channon gives video demonstrations on techniques to guide you even further. All in an easy to use, easy to navigate, multi-media PDF file, available as a CD or download .
