What you'll do

Lets talk about our plan. I am calling this experience as 'The Living Room'. The Living Room is located in Osmanbey which is also my flat. In the living room, I am trying to adopt my culinary experience into Turkish Cuisine.

The experience would start with 4 different starters and continue with 1 main course. In the end, I am going to serve a lovely dessert for you. All of the products that I used for this experience are local. There is an unique story lie behind every plate and I am so eager to share with you. During the experience, I am going to explain and share every detail of Turkish cuisine, culture and combine with the environment in the flat. I am looking forward to have a great time with you.

Come and join me.

Hello guys,

I am Ata. Originally, I am a civil engineer. After I finished my bachelors, I went to Sweden for my masters degree. When I finished my masters degree, I started to work in my field in Istanbul. At the same time, I was chasing new opportunities in order to improve my skills in cooking. To develop these skills, I quitted my profession and went after my passion. I went to Culinary Arts Academy in Istanbul for 8 months. After that, I went to Lisbon for an internship. The restaurant that I worked, held 1 Michelin Star (Restaurante Eleven). I stayed in Lisbon for 4 months. After my Lisbon journey, I came back to Istanbul. For a short period, I worked in Japanese restaurant. It had a good impact on my knowledge about Asian cuisine. Afterwards, I went to London for 1 month. In London, I worked at 'The Ledbury' which held 2 Michelin.

We enjoyed an exceptional evening of fine dining and conversation with Ata and his cousin in a special setting. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a unique experience in Istanbul. We were particularly appreciative that they could accommodate our two little dogs as well.

The food was delicious and every dish came with a story. "The Living Room" as a concept is unique and well executed. I hope it turns into a sensation one day. Ata and Alara are wonderful hosts and very helpful. I'd recommend this experience in a heart beat.

When I arrived, Ata and his cousin welcomed me at their beautiful home. Tradition Turkish home and I felt I traveled through time to the 50's/60's. Yellow walls filled with art and family portraits, wooden furniture everywhere. Located in a local friendly neighborhood. Table was ready for me and I had my special menu, variety of starters and main dish is so good! ends with delicious dessert. I got to see how main dish was cooked in their cute little kitchen. By the end of the night we shared stories and had good time. Highly recommended.

Ata and Lara shared the love they have for their food and culture. It was wonderful to be in their home and we felt like we where family. The food was amazing..taste... Presentation.. Concept.. Portions.. All of it was perfect for us.!Such a wonderful experience and the best example of culture shown through world class food, that I think I have ever had. I recommend this experience as a must do in Istanbul. The tips, advice, stories behind the food...but most important is their story,and they allowed us to be part of that story for the evening.I am so grateful for that.
