    About the Documentary: Feyza’s Kitchen

    Set against the backdrop of Türkiye’s beautiful Aegean region, this 45-minute documentary beautifully narrates the story behind the Academy of Gastronomy – an innovative educational institution established under the auspices of Ege University’s Faculty of Tourism in Çeşme. Brought to life with the joint support of Bridge to Türkiye Fund and Shipley Foundation, the Academy offers a pioneering model of local development bridging culinary arts, education, entrepreneurship and agriculture in the very heart of Türkiye's tourism industry. The documentary’s scope extends beyond development, exploring Çeşme’s vibrant but often overlooked agricultural heritage. In a region where urbanization is rapidly changing the town’s landscape, Feyza’s Kitchen also highlights Çeşme’s neglected potential and the remarkable impact of community involvement and women's empowerment. Read more here.
