Recently, we have often heard the name Özlem Warren in foreign media in particular. Ms. Warren, who is a Turkish chef living in the UK, has been playing a remarkable role in promoting Turkish cuisine across the globe.
She has been publishing an informative blog called "Özlem's Turkish Table" for quite a while, which has become an invaluable source for those interested in Turkish cuisine and how to properly prepare many delicious recipes involved. Moreover, the lady chef has also released her cookbook about Turkish Cuisine which she says took her 10 years to write.
Referring to her book, Ms. Warren says it’s a tribute to the wonderful diverse cuisine of Turkey and a celebration of her Southern Turkish roots with local regional recipes from her home town, Antakya (Antioch) which has hosted many different cultures throughout time. She also says she hopes the recipes in her book will take the reader on a journey to Turkey – to learn, taste and enjoy the delicious foods of her homeland. The book was written to share the “warmth and sharing spirit” of Turkish culture as expressed by Ms. Warren.
The good news for our foreign friends living in Turkey is Ozlem Warren is scheduled to be in Bodrum in October for several cooking classes and culinary gatherings.
In an interview on Turkish media Ms. Warren has said she is really excited to return to Bodrum with her cookery book and she looks forward to the special events she is expected to attend on October 25th and 26th. She says she loves Bodrum and it will be great pleasure for her to run some exciting events with wonderful groups in the town.
