Turkish Cuisine Week is a manifestation of the vision to promote the richness of Turkish cuisine to a global audience, said the Embassy. 

To that end, a gastronomy book titled ‘Turkish Cuisine with Timeless Recipes’ was recently published under the auspices of First Lady Emine Erdoğan.

The book features contributions from prominent chefs, academics, and experts; simultaneously, it draws attention to the famous Turkish cuisine and its waste-free, ecological, and sustainable characteristics.

In celebration, the Embassy of Turkey in Dhaka presented at a gala dinner titled Culinary Encounters some among the two hundred and eighteen recipes featured in the book by the talented Chef Levent Karahan, Executive Chef of Le Méridien, Dhaka.

Culinary Encounters hosted a diverse group of 60 distinguished guests including business people, artists, journalists, influencers and food bloggers. The partners of the event were Bengal Group, ICE Media Limited, Le Méridien Dhaka and Maasranga Television.
