SALT Galata, Workshop II-III

A series of talks initiated by Kök Projekt in collaboration with SALT, the Urban Food program will explore the current food culture in Istanbul, which has been transformed by internal and external migration flows in the past 30 years. With a special focus on productions of Syrian immigrants, who have settled in Istanbul following the war in Syria, the program aims to build a dialogue between various food cultures.

In the first Urban Food talk, founder of Savoring Syria project, Dalia Mortada will discuss food cultures conveyed by Syrian communities in the city and the ever-changing Istanbul culinary scene.

A Syrian-American journalist and writer, Mortada has been living in Istanbul since 2011, and is part of Culinary Backstreets. Her latest project, Savoring Syria, narrates the inner kitchen and food stories of Syria and Syrians.

The Urban Food talks are open to all.
