ANTAKYA THROUGH THE KITCHEN DOOR

COMBINING MODERN MULTICULTURALISM WITH ANCIENT HISTORY, ANTAKYA’S DIVERSE CUISINE ISVWNIQUE SYNTHESIS OF THE TASTES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN, THE MIDDLE EAST AND ANATOLIA. We decide to discover this city (ancient Antioch), nestled against the majestic peaks of the Amanos Mountains, through its cuisine.

The bridge that joins the two banks of the River Asi, which has given life to the city throughout its history, takes us straight to Uzun Garp, the Long Market. Stopping at one of the many shops selling kunefe (aka knaffeh, a rich pastry made of shredded filo dough filled with cheese and butter and drenched in sugar syrup) makes a tasty start…

Turkey Eastern women

Turkey Eastern women

What would you like to say about the overall character of eastern and western women based on what you`ve observed?

Eastern women appear charming, quiet and submissive. But, as I`ve said in every book I`ve written, this is dead wrong. Eastern women speak without yelling, without raising their voices. This dignity of theirs stems from their respect, not from fearfulness. Western women make a lot more noise, most of the time without getting what they want, whereas eastern women usually manage the path to their goals in a quieter way, and they usually get results. Their way of analyzing human psychology is more clever. Western women in contrast are more open than eastern women, and more assertive. It is hard to understand eastern women. These characterizations don`t apply to everyone of course.

If all those in a governing position in the world had been women, what kind of world would we live in?

We would definitely have been living in a better world, because…

Design Capability

Design Capability

Where is Turkey in this trend? Where do we stand in terms of design capability?

While a production-weary world is being rocked by a series of crises and the top players are changing places with unprecedented speed, Turkey, as a rapidly growing and steadily developing country, has the 17th largest economy in the world. As in the other developing countries, we have a vital need to create global brands that produce goods and services that are self-renewing and high in value added in order to grow and strengthen our economy. As a first condition, all our production units, from the biggest to the smallest, need to appreciate the value and significance of product design and the need for R&D investments, and to realize that this requires infinite patience, and that sustaining such investment is actually not a costly risk.

As the western world is slowing down, Turkey is developing. The west`s brand designers are taking an interest in our country and want to play an activ…
