Chef Fatih Tutak was born and raised in Istanbul where at a young age his culinary interest was inspired by his mother’s home cooking. This interest became a passion and developed into his dream of becoming a chef.
After his apprenticeship with Paul Pairet in Istanbul and working in some of the cities top luxury hotels and restaurants, Chef Fatih Tutak had the opportunity to move abroad, with stop-overs in Qingdao, Beijing, Tokyo, Singapore, Denmark and Hong Kong.
Some of his experiences included the world-renowned restaurant NOMA in Copenhagen with Rene Redzepi and 3 Michelin star Nihonryori Ryugin in Tokyo with Seiji Yamamoto.
Combining the finest ingredients from all over the world, each of Chef Fatih’s dishes are inspired by his globetrotting experiences. By playing with texture and temperature Chef Fatih craftily curates Innovative Turkish cuisine with a perfect balance of culinary sensibility and a sense of humour.
His dream is that of feeding mind and soul of the ones that come and taste his cuisine. In his restaurant Turk Fatih Tutak, in Instanbul, he continued to follow his motherland traditions. He is giving his guests a gastronomic journey made of study, innovation, and tradition. The chef reinterprets family recipes and childhood memories from Balkans to the Mediterranean region and Anatolia to the Turkish culture, then going to the influence of Central Asia.
