In the Aegean, the passion of eating and drinking is inseparable. The abundance of food in Aegean, which is delicious and healthy, never exhausts. The secret of the Aegean tables is the endless greenery in the mountains, the fishy Aegean Sea, the productivity of plains, sincerity, and competence of the Aegean people. With such an inspiration, this work is a story that revolves around Aegean. This is a food and drink adventure of eating and drinking inspired by Aegean’s few points, ingredients, and recipes. The adventure of eating and drinking in this work starts with olives and figs, continues from tarhana soup to fish mezes, from green herbaceous salads to stews, and a great story from sweets to drinks.
I inspired all of my recipes from the Aegean cuisine. Since I do not believe that any flavor occurs by itself, I do not also think that these recipes solely belong to me. You will see that these flavors benefit from the inheritance of the people living in Aegean land, who put various ingredients together to make delicious foods for centuries. Consequently, by feeling that these flavors and ingredients are in my genetic codes and the self-confidence of being from the Aegean region encouraged me to get into the kitchen.
