About The Journey

During 2008 we undertook a culinary journey around as much of Europe, Turkey and north & west Africa as we could cover, gathering recipes and stories as we went.  It was incredible; we met so many talented cooks, both domestic and professional, and learnt a tonne.

We posted pictures, recipes, food facts and general diary stuff on the way.  We're continuing to add more now that we're back in the UK, so keep checking for posts added more recently for all the countries we've visited.

The map shows our journey and everywhere we stopped.  We split the adventure into two legs: first we drove east to Turkey and back; then south to Ghana, from where we flew home.  This is roughly how it panned out:
