Sketch of the day in my moleskine art journal is of Dondurma, a Turkish ‘elastic’ ice cream. It is made with milk, sugar salep and mastic. Salep is a natural thickening agent made from the root of purple orchid, and mastic a resin that gives it the chewy texture.
Today is my last day in Istanbul. It’s been an amazing experience and I am sad to leave.
Ice cream makes everything better
ice cream solves everything xoxo
