Together, we will be cooking one of the favorite dishes from the Aegean coast in the small village where I live and women still remember and cherish old recipes of the land. We will be using herbs from my herb garden to do the seasoning. After our labors around the cooking stove, we will enjoy a much earned moment on the terrace of my house overlooking the beautiful village Sirince.

Meet Your Live Virtual Guide
Like many oriental names, my name has a positive meaning. It means 'good news'. Although, for your sake, it is much easier that you call me Muj!
In life, many people have their calling. Although I cannot say clearly that I have found mine, I am lucky enough to say I have pursued many callings, professionally and as a dedicated hobbyist.
Alongside being a professional tour guide, hotelier and chef, I write books and present workshops on ancient cooking and I am a traditional architect.
In this one hour together, I will try to show you how to prepare one of the typical dishes from the Aegean coast of Turkey.
