The best Turkish and world cuisine in Istanbul

This year, Istanbul has been designated as European Capital of Culture, a chance to showcase its cultural life and development. So, one of the numerous activities planned for this year is the 8th International Istanbul Gastronomy Festival that will be held between the dates 18-21st of March.


If many of you are already well familiar with this festival, then you know that professional chefs and gastronomy fans will meet once again where the continents meet history. As the spring season starts to show the beauty of lovely Istanbul, we guarantee you that you will enjoy being here.
Foods from around the world will meet Turkish cuisine at the Tuyap Istanbul Exhibition Palace during four days.

A competition to choose the best chef
In fact, this is about a competition. International chefs will compete against top Turkish cooks, providing visitors with a good opportunity to discover new culinary pleasures. One of the goals of this convention is to affiliate Turkish chefs with the best of those around the globe and allow an exchange of knowledge of the profession that will result in personal growth and achievement. The chef who comes out winner of the competition will not only receive medals as a reward, but will also receive internationally accredited certificates.

Are you gonna miss this chance to savour delicious cuisine? Just taking a walk through the exhibition site perceiving dishes’ scent must be a delight for senses. Yummy! Imagine yourself tasting dolmaks (vine leaves cooked with olive oil and stuffed with a rice-spice mixture, meat or vegetables), the famous Turkish pizza or Lahmacun and as a dessert a delicious baklava, a sweet pastry made of layers of phyllo, accompanied by a good cup of çay (Turkish tea).
