Hi,

I'm trying to throw an American-style Christmas dinner and am probably asking the impossible, but does anyone know where to find sweet potatoes (yams) and/or cranberries in Istanbul. I heard there was a store, perhaps in Nisantas, that might carry such products, but I'm open to any suggestions.

A few years ago, I found some local yam variant that was dark in color with a sweet but chalky taste. I don't remember the Turkish word for it, but it might work as a substitute.

Thanks
