I am a journalist and translator and author of who lives in Istanbul since 2009. During this time I started to study Gastronomy and wrote Gourmet guide to Istanbul (available in Ukrainian and Russian).

In 2017, successfully studied at the International Wine and Spirits Academy in Istanbul and passed the WSET1 and WSET2 level certification of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust in the Wine category.

I consult on Turkish cuisine media, corporate clients and curious travellers. I create and organize special tastings, workshops, gastronomic trips and quests in Istanbul.

I would be happy to introduce you to real Istanbul – a giant city, full of flavours, fragrances, emotions and mysterious legends.

You are welcome to ask for advice from the author of the guidebook (that is me :)) or get consulted regarding planning of your future trip to Istanbul.
