Thanks for stopping by!
I am Elif, a wife, a mom to my little boy, Artun, an İstanbul native, and an avid baker and cook of all things delicious – thanks to life-long encouragement from my friends and my family.
I enjoy cooking and baking and photographing what I have created. For me, the most satisfying part of making any dish is sharing it with friends and family. I cook and bake for enjoyment and I find both therapeutic.
After settling in the United States in 2016, I found I missed the unique flavors and tastes of Turkish restaurants. I began to cook more and experiment with new recipes. I got so many complements on my dishes that I decided to turn my hobby into a career and Turkish Kitchen was born. I began my catering business to bring what I make to all of you.
I am not a trained chef. I am self-taught and when it came to cooking, baking, photography and business in general I faced a steep learning curve.
Now we are in London, Ontario, and it is with great pleasure that I use my expertise and passion in the kitchen to bring to you Turkish Kitchen, a unique Turkish food service and catering company located in London, Ontario, that offers quality natural food choices for your lifestyle while bringing your family and friends back to the table.
Whether it is a small intimate dinner party or a large event, attention to detail is our priority at every level. Our commercial kitchen in the heart of London gives us the ability to easily cater to our customers’ needs.
Now I can say, “it is truly a dream come true.”
