A guy is entitled to a few obsessions and for me it's anchovies (hamsi inTurkish). But not just any old anchovies mind you, for me it's got to be Black Sea anchovies cooked at the source. So shooting this piece for The New York Times was a natural fit. Despite the vagaries of the Black Sea weather and a spotty hamsi catch I can't think of a better way to spend a week or two then tooling up and down the coast. Probably my favorite part of the country (and I've got a few other favs!).
For a glimpse of what it's like check out this slide show accompanied by song "Hamsi' performed by classic Turkish band Moğollar. Enjoy!
