1. A cross-continent cooking connection in Lille and Istanbul.

    A double open house, with double-dipping flavor combinations, connecting guests in Lille with those in Istanbul through a live video stream. We enjoyed a lazy summer afternoon, munching on snacks that we created together, chatting about life, love and the future of food culture.

  2. An interactive cooking event,
    this edition for children (and adults of course!)

    We gathered in Kartal, Istanbul (TR), connected live with Cenap, Anisa and their family's cafe in Göreme, Cappadocia (TR).

    Together we made fruit smoothies, the favorite summer menu item of Cenap's cafe. We also made (and then ate) a Chocolate Mountain, a variation of their family's favorite snack.

  3. Virtual Chef events projects explore international food, made in Istanbul while connected online with individuals throughout the world. To celebrate the birthday of the Caravansarai project space in Istanbul, we investigated birthday traditions and recipes from around the world.

    We joined the Birthday dinner of Sarah Graddy, cooking with us live in Florida, USA. We cooked broccoli - leek pie and chocolate torte. We also prepared three other birthday cakes - a variation of Sachertorte, bunny cake and chocolate fondant.

  4. Preparations for an Iftar meal, simultaneously in Istanbul and Hoorn

    We joined the opening of the project and exhibition: 'Long Distance Call' in the chapel space in Hotel MariaKapel.

    To break the Ramazan fast we first ate dates, aprocots, salt and drank some much needed water. Watching each other as we cooked, we attempted the first Skype transport of Ramazan pide from Turkey to the Netherlands (a special bread prepared in Turkey expecially for Ramazan). It almost worked.

  5. We meet in a spacious professional kitchen in Küçükçekmece, a suburb of Istanbul along the Küçükçekmece Lake, a large inlet of the Marmara Sea. Along with the capable students of the regular Friday cooking class, we connected with Filiz Hosukoglu, a culinary researcher and expert in preparing (and eating) the cuisine of Gaziantep.

    With instructions from Filiz in Gaziantep, we prepared one of her favorite dishes, a traditional and very healthy purslane dish with beans, lentils, chick peas and bulgur.
