Constantinople, or Istanbul as it is known today, is a unique city as far as history and location is concerned.

Geographically, it has a natural harbour bordered by the ocean on three sides and it is the only city in the world which is considered to be both in Europe and Asia. The straits of Bosphorus divide the city into two, with one end merging into the black sea, and the other into the Sea of Marmara. A tiny branch of the Bosphorus to the west forms the ‘Golden Horn’, which is the only entry into the city.

The Nigella sativa, for instance, is a plant found throughout Turkey, Syria, Ethopia and parts of Iraq that produces gorgeous yet delicate flowers. These flowers range from light blue to white color and have tall skinny leaves. These flowers contain pods that carry many seeds called “black cumin fruit” or nigella seeds, as we know them. Other names include black cumin, black onion seed, and black sesame seed. The list doesn’t stop there, though.
