Istanbul on the horizon

In a few weeks I am taking my grandson Adam to Istanbul for his special Grandma trip.  A few years ago I took his sister Elena to Venice and Rome. We haad a great time. Now it is Adams’ turn.

Naturally it will be an eating adventure. Eggplant a hundred ways, kebabs, boreks, baklava, guvecs, street food galore . We will have a guide for a few days so that all the art history that I have forgotten will be told to Adam by our guide. Then  one day we are going on a street food crawl with Istanbul Eats. We will be dining at Ciya twice, thank goodness, as chef Musa is an inspiration.  I have eaten his wonderful food at the CIA at the World of Flavors conferences. Alway a show stopper. 

Our dinner reservations have been arranged by Cenk Sonmenzsoy  Cenk is a talented food blogger based in  Istanbul   His site is   Cenk is writing his first cook book and is also a chocoholic He and Adam should get along just fine.

So stay tuned for more. I promise to write about our Istanbul adventure.
