One-Line Bio

An Istanbul housewife, cooking with whatever I can find in shops, in my garden and in packages from home.


I was born underweight and the hospital declared my umbilical cord to be the thinnest they had ever seen. The nurse was about to put me in an incubator but having seen how greedily I fed, decided I would do just fine.

Since those first hours of life, I have had an intense interest in nourishing myself. I love food and take great satisfaction in preparing tasty food. Food is one of life's sublime pleasures and should be fun.

Needless to say, I am no longer underweight.
