The chef is a ‘click’ away
Izmir University of Economics (IUE) started the ‘E-Chef’ application for those who want to learn the delicacies of Turkish and world cuisine and learn the tricks that will add flavor to the dishes. Tolgahan Kamiloğlu, Semen Öner and Melih Demirel, who work at IUE Department of Gastronomy and Culinary Arts and have international experience, will make surprise programs on social media and will answer the questions posed to them instantly as part of the program until August 14.
Everyone, regardless of their age, will be able to write their questions to email@example.com address from recipes to all developments in the field of gastronomy. Trainer chefs of IUE will immediately answer the questions posed to them in detail. In addition, interviews will be held with the exciting career adventures of IUE Department of Gastronomy and Culinary Arts graduates, and with world-renowned gastronomy schools and the pioneers of the Izmir gastronomy sector.
A SAMPLE PROJECT
Asst. Prof. Betül Öztürk, Director of IUE School of Applied Management Sciences, stated that they have started the ‘E-Chef’ project for the first time and emphasized that they have achieved a unique work through digitalization, which is the requirement of the age. Asst. Prof. Öztürk said, “By combining the digital world and the world of gastronomy on the same platform, we created our own online chefs. With the pandemic, the 'digitization' process has speeded up considerably. Institutions now focus on online projects, regardless of their field. Such projects will increase even more in the coming periods. I think the 'E-Chef' project we started is an example in the field of gastronomy.”
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS AS WELL
Asst. Prof. Öztürk stated the following: “Thanks to the platform called E-Chef, you will find answers to all your curious questions about the world of gastronomy and gastronomy education. Everyone will easily have access to the information they want about something related to gastronomy. We will offer an important opportunity to prospective students who want to study gastronomy to learn whatever they can think of. 'E-Chef' is not just about asking questions. We will also plan special events with surprise guests until August 14.”
