Hello travelling foodies, Deniz here!
My passion for cooking brought me to Paris almost 20 years ago, where I trained as a chef at Le Cordon Bleu. After working in top kitchens and pastry labs for many years, I have discovered the food nerd in me alongside a new passion for food research which led me to pursue a master’s degree in food studies.
These experiences have given me a deep understanding of cultural, geographic and historical forces that shape recipes, food traditions and cuisines which I love sharing with others on my tours.
I lead gastronomic adventures through bustling markets, specialty food stores, historic wine cellars, iconic Parisian institutions as well as hidden gems off the beaten path. I believe that tasting authentic flavors and learning about the stories behind them is the best way to appreciate the rich diversity of any culture. It will be an immense joy to share my knowledge and passion for food and wine with you through your Parisian food journey.
