Turkish Delight-2

Drop into Starbucks to take a cup of latte with me. Smile at newspaper seller and talk about weather with an unknown beautiful woman while waiting for a green traffic light…

These trifle things make my day. As well as great and nice Chefs, whom I’m happy to work with. Incredible presentation of their dishes. Tasty and unusual food. Charismatic people – this is so cool!

I’m happy at my work. And I would like to share a bit of this happiness with you. With the help of this texts, photos and recipes.

Enjoy, like I do.
