Chef Serkan Anavatan presented products sourced from the Urla region, using simple cooking techniques and completing the dishes with a modern presentation.

The Blue Tail Shrimp - a special species seen only in Urla and the Aegean Sea - was inspired by the Teruar Urla Vineyard Hotel. Chef Serkan’s preference is to use seasonal vegetables and crops. Many products from the Aegean Sea were introduced to us in different combinations and courses, of particular mention, was dessert where chestnuts were presented with different textures.

At the end of the meal, Bailli Bülent Akgerman with Bailliage officers Haluk Özyavuz and Enis Güner thanked the kitchen team led by Chef Serkan Anavatan and the service team led by Restaurant Manager Hakan Susamcılar.

Vive la Chaine!
