This book captures both very well. I have noticed the author added an american twist to some recipes, which I found very welcoming. The book is a great addition to any library that focuses on Turkish cooking. These recipes are dutifully noted, so you can always look up the original recipe if it is not already explained in the book. If this is going to be your first Turkish cookbook and you are focusing on only traditional cooking (which has harder to find ingredients or methods), you might want to consider other books. The one that I use: Sultan's Kitchen: A Turkish Cookbook.
