Ghillie’s Books


“One of the finest writers on Middle Eastern food is Ghillie Basan”
Clarissa Dickson Wright


Turkish, Moroccan, Middle Eastern, Malaysian, Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Indonesian – there are more than 40 cookery titles to choose from. Many of the titles are translated into German, Dutch, French, Spanish and Scandinavian languages and there are US versions of some titles, or US conversion charts within the books. My informative and evocative books have been shortlisted for the Glenfiddich, the Guild of Food Writers’, and the Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards. I have also contributed to Easy Tagine, DK Mediterranean Cookbook, and Eye Witness Travel Guide: Istanbul.

You can find my books at mainstream, specialist and on-line bookstores.
