WORD FROM THE FOUNDER
“I have always been captivated by recipes that differ slightly in taste from country to country. I would spend my time researching the ingredients and spices that lead to this subtle yet notable difference in flavour. So, I wanted to shed light on the different versions of recipes, pointing out their history and origins to give each of them its own character and background.
Whenever I travelled, I always wanted to wander and explore the authentic and local restaurants to taste the most prominent and traditional dishes in every country. However, alongside my humble experience, I wanted the users to also share with me their own experiences.”

A popular dumpling dish, originating from the Mogul Empire and later spreading to Turkey and Armenia and other neighboring countries such as Azerbaijan and Afghanistan. It has a variety of different filling options including meat and vegetables.
Contrary to popular belief, cheesecake did not originate in New York, rather in Ancient Greece. This chocolate cheesecake however, has a modern twist on the traditional cheesecake. It is a baked cheesecake topped with a layer of mouthwatering chocolate ganache and decorated with all kinds of chocolate bars, cookies, and strawberries.
