I am a natural born eater with a travel bug. After spending several years abroad running an Italian restaurant as the kitchen manager, I decided to return to my roots in Istanbul to re-connect with my own food culture.
I started roaming around Istanbul and Turkey and the world to explore different local foods, and pretty soon travelling and searching for new tastes became my addiction.
I love sharing my new findings with foodies like myself, and to share the wonderful flavours my country has to offer.
The spoon is the oldest eating utensil that was used in almost every civilization since the Ancient Egyptians. It also happens to be my favorite kind of utensil to use in eating, and even cooking. Going anywhere outside of Istanbul is considered ‘traveling’ to me, whether I am in a remote town in France or the north Aegean coast of Turkey. I take my curiosity along with my spoon and travel to eat the local flavors of all the places I visit. My appetite for experiencing the world is what motivates me to share my experiences with other foodies.
