Series Two of Shane Delia’s Spice Journey, takes him to exotic Turkey. It’s here he searches for the historical and cultural foundations of his contemporary take on Middle Eastern flavours and to experience the legacy of the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires.
In a sense, Shane takes a trip back to the dawn of food culture. It was in Anatolia ten thousand years ago that humankind built the first permanent towns, worked out how to domesticate wheat and animals, and constructed the first religious complexes.
This series is a celebration of Shane’s love for the cultures that make up the Middle East and all the blessings the region has brought him: life, love, and food.
