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.
