    Welcoming our newcomers to Istanbul, and also to our current members, we would like to offer you the chance to learn about the rather special Turkish breakfast in the comfort of the beautiful home of one of our longest-standing members, Ayşe Yücel, also the Newcomers Coordinator (European side).

    Start to understand the culture, traditions and cuisine of your new home country, make friends and ask some of the 'locals' about how they have adjusted to living in this wonderful city.

    Food is the universal language that not only give the pleasure to the soul but also brings people together with laughter and warmth. Our long time board member Ayşe Yücel is famed for her interest and expertise in Turkish food, as well as for her warm hospitality.
