Meliz Berg is a self-taught cook, recipe developer and food content creator. Inspired by her Turkish-Cypriot heritage, and experience of growing up in a household that combined both traditional Cypriot and London living, she created the blog and instagram page @MelizCooks.

Meliz Cooks is loved for its easy-to-follow recipes, addictive combinations of flavours and spices, and for highlighting the mixture of beautiful cuisines evident in Cyprus. Her recipes have featured in Co-op Food and Asda Good Living Magazine, as well as for Good Homes and the Guardian.

Her new cookbook, Meliz’s Kitchen, is a celebration of the melting-pot of delicious spices and fresh flavours that make a Turkish-Cypriot kitchen.

In this book Meliz shares the best comforting recipes and her easy go-to meals for busy family life.
