Tuck in to Cretan eggs with wild weeds

You may take your eggs with bacon, perhaps salmon, a bit of avocado or on a slice of crusty sourdough, but how about with weeds? The dark-green weeds that grew wild along the Aegean coast were gobbled gleefully by the Cretans for centuries before the Turkish eventually incorporated them into their cooking.

Follow Istanbul-born chef Somer Sivrioğlu and food scholar David Dale’s lead as they explain in their new cookbook Anatolia how to construct this epic breakfast. more
