What Made Turkish Chef Burak Özdemir Famous

At the age of 13, Burak began working in a family restaurant as an assistant to his father. He dreamed of becoming a football player, but due to financial difficulties, he had to help in the kitchen. There he acquired his first cooking skills.

His grandparents played an important role in his growth as a cook. They regularly made national dishes according to old recipes: from pilaf to kebab. So Burak learned all the nuances of Turkish cuisine as a teenager.

When the boy was only 16 years old, the responsibility for the branch of the family restaurant was placed on his shoulders. His father opened it in the suburbs of Istanbul and handed it over to his son.

Burak recalled that then no one believed in him, because the restaurant was opened not by him, but by his father. But the chef found a common language with the whole team, from the cook to the waiter. He was able to show them that he sees the establishment not as his own restaurant, but as a place where everyone is important.

The Turkish chef has been observing his father’s management skills for years, so he tried to do everything the same way. At the same time, Burak decided to take a bold step to completely change the recipes. Then he started making these incredibly huge burgers and meat platters.

Charity takes a special place in Burak Özdemir’s life. He constantly posts cooking shows with further tasting. Fortunately, he prepares such amounts of food that it is more than enough for an entire nursing home or an orphanage. Of course, food is not the only thing he gives to charity.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
