We now pro­duce Food and Travel in seven coun­tries and in our 200th is­sue are cel­e­brat­ing three of the most dy­namic cap­i­tal cities where we pub­lish. First stop is Turkey, where we launched in 2008. Ankara is a fas­ci­nat­ing mix­ture of

me­dieval ar­chi­tec­ture and con­tem­po­rary cos­mopoli­tanism, where tra­di­tional restau­rants and lively cock­tail bars jos­tle for space in the an­cient ci­tadel. Ex­pect unc­tu­ous lamb stews, ten­der ke­babs and thick-as-syrup cof­fee. Next up is Ger­many, our home since 2010, where Ber­lin’s leg­endary cre­ative scene con­tin­ues to flour­ish. From the rub­ble of the Ber­lin Wall to the Re­ich­stag, the city’s past is vis­i­ble wher­ever you look. Browse ex­pan­sive tal­ent in in­de­pen­dent

gal­leries, pound Kreuzberg’s pave­ments spot­ting street art and rest your head in imag­i­na­tive de­sign ho­tels. On to Italy, where we have lived the dolce vita since 2015. Fol­low in the foot­steps of em­per­ors, artists and the pope to Rome, the

ro­man­tic city with a cool, gritty edge. The res­i­dents’ trade­mark style is ob­vi­ous in every­thing from the in­tri­cate fres­coes which adorn the baroque churches to the pre­sen­ta­tion of vel­vety pasta alla car­bonara in ev­ery neigh­bour­hood trat­to­ria.
