Today’s episode is a gem! By the end of the chat I was hungry and wistful for places I haven’t yet visited. Hearing today’s guest speak of food has inspired me to give eggplant another go (the priest fainted recipe… can’t wait to give to try!), try my hand at making börek, and eagerly planing a trip

Today’s episode is a gem! By the end of the chat I was hungry and wistful for places I haven’t yet visited. Hearing today’s guest speak of food has inspired me to give eggplant another go (the priest fainted recipe… can’t wait to give to try!), try my hand at making börek, and eagerly planing a trip to the Mediterranean.Taner Alpaslan is a Turkish Mediterranean man born and raised in Belgium. Hearing him speak of all the wonderful flavours that were everyday cooking in his house will leave your mouth watering! We met years ago and I’ve always admired his style and ease. And he’s a great cook!As an aside I think it’s funny so many guests say they were a bit embarrassed at their school lunches - his lunches sound like they were amazing! I also love the story about him questioning why other mother’s didn’t speak Turkish at home. It’s a sweet reminder of the innocence of children and how growing up we all assume we are all the same. Which, after speaking with to an ever growing group of people I’ve realized that although our languages, flavours, and appearances maybe different… ultimately we are all the same. Celebrating each other and life through the breaking of bread, taking extra time to prepare special meals and visiting new places to experience the food and flavours of other cultures brings us joy.I hope you’ll enjoy today’s episode!Cheers!- - -To follow the guest on Instagram @taneralpa- - -I use and recommend Force Of Nature as a cleaning and disinfecting product.
