Meet The Chefs! An Interview with Zeynep Pamirtan

  • What is your favorite food that makes you feel good?

I love all kinds of food regardless. Since we are from the Aegean, perhaps vegetables and herbs are better for me. These are the dishes that make me feel light and healthy.

  • What does it mean to you to be a woman working in the field of gastronomy?

I do not discriminate between men or women. I am a chef from a musician background. While playing the viola, our orchestra and conductor were very valuable. Without them, the works could not be performed. I experience this in the kitchen as well, we are all needed, we add color to our plates separately and of course there is the maestro again, which must be the most enjoyable part. Works done together but as one.

  • What is your favorite destination to visit? Why?

We are having a very busy season. Therefore, I do not have many opportunities to spend time outside. I think my favorite destination to go is my home. Because I have peace, love and a daughter.
