Turquazz is a nonprofit culture platform created in 2019 with the aim of bringing two crucial aspects of culture together: Flavour and melody. Taking its roots in the Anatolian region from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean and from Greece to the borders of Iran, Turquazz explores the endless stories of this vast landscape with a long-standing history and multi-faceted culture. This project aims to bring a contemporary approach to the culinary and musical richness of the cultural mosaic that is Anatolia. The goal of this platform is to provide literature for the English-speaking world about culinary and music cultures rooted in Anatolia, while featuring articles that focus on timeless cultural commentary. Turquazz is a new way of talking about culture and a cultural movement that aspires to bring Anatolian music and culinary art, artists and creatives and new audiences together.
