Welcome to my bookish kitchen!

I’ve been toying around the idea of open a blog for a few months. I wanted a place where I could share my hobbies, reading, cooking and traveling, a place of my own far away from my job’s world (that I love and enjoy). So I came up with the idea that I could share with other passionate people my researches on recipes that I found mentioned in the books I read.  Cold meat pies from Emma’s picnics, Elven breads from the Lord of the rings, pilafs and pastries from Arabian Nights, Pesto alla trapanese from Commissario Montalbano.  My hope is that you will share your favourite books and recipes here so that we will have our minds full of good stories and our kitchen full of the smell of memorable food.

Hi! I am Anna, I am from Florence (Italy) but I currently live in Turkey, before I have lived in other countries, Ireland, Russia and Sweden. I am not a professional cook, nor a photographer, but I have a kitchen with a view on the Bosphorus (in the profile photo) and rooms full with books. Welcome in my Bookish Kitchen!
