Istanbul - It's on my list of places I'd like to dwell long enough to have a favorite place to eat and have friends who are expatriates from curious places. I love the color and the light and the visual layering, a bit like Cuba, elegance despite shabbiness. In a century+ old cookbook I have, there's a wonderful recipe for a spicy stew from Istanbul, with yams and dates and lamb. It tastes a bit decadent with an intriguing combination of elements one could follow like a footpath.
