A cosmopolis where continents meet, Istanbul has been home to more than 120 emperors and sultans over centuries. It has inspired artists, writers and poets. Its mix of east and west, glamorous and sublime; tradition and modernity is apparent in all aspects of daily life, including its culinary heritage. Its great diversity is seen in its magical Spice Market, rich fish stands and even miscellaneous neighborhood farmer’s fresh markets; and on the other hand from small local traditional “lokanta”s to very luxurious upscale restaurants, Istanbul is like a treasure hunt for food-lovers.
In 2012, Le Cordon Bleu and Ozyegin University have partnered to establish an international gastronomy and restaurant management school in Ozyegin University campus, in the heart of İstanbul. This partnership is now offering the opportunity to all the international students to be trained with outstanding French culinary techniques in English, with Master Chefs in a state-of-art facilities and in a very colorful gastronomical heritage.
