About Me

Hello there!

I’m Melis Sebnem Sukan.
I was born in Istanbul, the most beautiful city on earth according to me.  After studying at the Österreichisches St. Georgs-Kolleg Istanbul, I graduated from the Department of Business Administration at Koç University.  I started working at the Vienna Touristic Enterprises-Cafe Wien, which is my family business.  During a 17-year period, I worked at all stages of a small-scale food and beverage business, leaving the company with a manager buyout in 2016, to have more time for my family and myself.  I am married, with two children.

After the family business, I worked as an instructor at a private university in the Department of Gastronomy and Hotel Management for four semesters.  In coordination with Le Cordon Bleu, I was in charge of the restaurant in the university, running the restaurant together with the students as an applied course.

Ever since I was a kid, my biggest curiosity is traveling to see new places and eating good food.

I like sharing my travel and foof & beverage experiences on my Instagram account and blog.  My travel articles are published in various magazines.

I would be more than happy to inspire enthusiasts like me!
