The flavours and dishes he experiences here are unlike any others he’s discovered on his journey throughout Turkey. This is a cultural and culinary melting pot where political borders are meaningless. From a pistachio plantation in Gaziantep to an Assyrian kitchen in Midyat, Shane’s palate is introduced to an ancient heritage that’s still evolving today.
