Culinary Backstreets’ co-founders Ansel Mullins and Yigal Schleifer recently spent a few days introducing a crew from the CBS Sunday Morning show to Istanbul’s gastronomic underbelly, at one point journeying in a rickety wooden boat on the Golden Horn in order to get to the next meal. Tagging along on one of CB’s culinary walks, the CBS crew found themselves feasting on grilled lamb’s intestines, artisanal pide and Turkish delight that’s been made by the same family in the same shop for three generations. The segment CBS produced, which ran this past Sunday, can be viewed below:
