In This Episode

Ebru Baybara Demir is a Turkish chef with a big dream; to introduce tourism to Mardin, a municipality in the Kurdish region of Turkey. It was a brave decision as Mardin is a city beset by terror-related security issues, boasting very little local agriculture and dealing with huge border problems due to the war in neighbouring Syria. 

On the podcast they discuss the challenges of creating a restaurant from scratch, preparing and serving local delicacies and pulling together as women in a patriarchal society to make culinary dreams come true.
