English Summary/英文概要: The stories behind Turkey’s huge variety of sweets and puddings are as fascinating as their multiplicity of flavours. This riveting exploration of their history and role in Turkish culture is a voyage of adventure, taking us from the sultan’s palace to the homes of ordinary people in Turkey’s villages and towns, and beyond to Central Asia, Persia, Arabia, Egypt and the Levant. This is the land of Turkish delight perfumed with rosewater and musk, rose jam, whose praises were sung by Rumi, asure, zerde tinted with saffron, baklava filled with nuts, clotted cream or cheese, milk puddings and helvas, strings of nuts dipped in grape syrup, lollipops in the shape of animals and model gardens built of sugar carried in wedding processions. The first study of Turkish confectionery ever to be published, Sherbet and Spice offers a rare look at the evolution of sweets from the non-European angle, based on many Turkish sources little known outside Turkey that lend a new dimension to the subject


Awards/获奖情况: Mary Isin has written an amazing work about every kind of Turkish confectionery, pastry, pudding, preserve and ice cream. The recipes are historic ones and the introduction and background text provide a fascinating insight into the Turkish past and the culture that created what is at the heart of one of the richest cuisines. I found it riveting. - Claudia Roden

’The Turks have been famous for their sweet tooth since the days when so many confectioners worked at the Topkapi Palace that they had their own mosque. Sweets permeate Turkish life. Mary Isin has gathered a mountain of information on this rich subject - recipes from the Middle Ages to the present, science, history and folkways. It s a sweet read. - Charles Perry, food historian

’A fascinating and informative exploration of the role of sweetness in Turkish culture over the centuries.’ - Laura Mason, food historian and author of Sugar-plums and Sherbet

’This is a history foremost, but there are 70 authentic recipes included showing how to recreate some of Turkey s huge variety of sweets and puddings. What I had to read left me wanting more, it is a superbly written social history, revealing a new dimension to Turkish food and culture.’ --Sue Baker, The Bookseller
