Borough Market Cookbook Club - 'Samarkand' by Caroline Eden and Eleanor Ford

Samarkand in Uzbekistan is often described as a ‘crossroads of cultures’ and it is there that this book’s culinary journey across Central Asia and the Caucasus begins. Caroline Eden (whose most recent book, Black Sea, has been scooping-up accolades aplenty) brings her experience of travelling through the region, combining with Eleanor Ford’s exotic yet approachable recipes. 

Samarkand was a Guardian book of the year in 2016 and went on to win the Guild of Food Writers ‘Food and Travel’ award in 2017.  The Daly Telegraph described it as, “'a book to delight food lovers, travel hounds and history buffs alike.’  It’s a sure-fire bet to absolutely delight the Cookbook Club too.
