Turkey (Turkey) celebrates Turkish Cuisine Week. A country renowned worldwide for its wealth of centuries-old cuisine will present its culinary heritage at an event that will take place for the first time on May 21-27. During the Turkish Cuisine Week, the best Turkish dishes of original quality and unique taste will be served. Turkish Cuisine Week is planned as a regular event that will take place every year.

Turkish cuisine, known for its traditional recipes, has its roots in Anatolian history, but today it is known throughout the world primarily as a cuisine that responds to all trends of modern gastronomy. By contrast, Turkish recipes based on using whole ingredients, not food waste, attest to a deeply entrenched tradition of favoring the environment and sustainable development. Most importantly, Turkish cuisine is known for its vegetarian dishes made with high-quality olive oil, so vegetarians and vegans will also find many delicious options in its range.
