Napoleon said, "If the world were a single state, Istanbul would be its Capital". Istanbul is where East meets West, where Asia meets Europe. This city has been the crossroads and trading centre of the world throughout history and its cuisine is a reflection of that. It is rich and diverse. It is dynamic and delicious.
"I can't wait to share my stories and experiences about Turkish food culture with you while we feast on the best foods this city has to offer."
