Swissôtel The Bosphorus, General Manager

Our belief in Accor Hotel Group’s and mine personally, being an ex-chef; is to create significant impact by giving support to energetic formations and visionary concepts, putting our signatures to whatever we do through original details. As an ambitious Hotel Group, underlining the excellence in gastronomy, we consider our primary target is to value original projects with a potential to carry culinary culture to an upper level, through our global vision and expertise.

Internationally recognized Le Cordon Bleu’s superior education will give a strong support for the development and enrichment of the progress of gastronomy from local and even global perspectives. Therefore, we believe our cooperation with Özyeğin University and Le Cordon Bleu would be beneficial for development and recognition of the local richness of Turkish Culinary Culture which is one of the richest Cuisine in the world. And we believe, through this education, culinary art students will have a significant progress in their careers.
