Experience a Turkish Family's Daily Dinner!

Istanbul, Turkey


Traveling is more than seeing old buildings, we all agree on that, right?
We have limited time and a lot to visit, learn and experience.
I believe dinners are the shortcuts to daily culture of a society!

    Asude est accueillante et chaleureuse. Elle nous a fait faire un petit tour de la ville avant le repas. Elle est une bonne source d'informations et ses propos sont judicieux. Pour la table, nous avons eu droit à plusieurs plats dont j'ai oublié les noms. Elle disait que sa grand- mère enseignait qu'il en fallait au moins cinq! Thé et café étaient au rendez-vous.
    Bref, agréable rencontre avec une jeune femme intelligente.
