Leyla Yvonne Ergil gives us a great insight into Turkish food festivals
The ninth annual “Restaurant Week,” a meeting of gastronomic-centered minds in prestigious and historical venues around town, descends upon Istanbul in the second week of October. Throughout the week and beyond, many of Istanbul’s best restaurants will be preparing special tasting menus for affordable prices that will be heavily focused on showcasing Turkish cuisine. In addition to a full-week of catered breakfast, lunch and dinner menus at select restaurants around town, there will also be talks, tastings and cooking classes.
“If you are anywhere near Istanbul and Izmir, don’t miss this!”
