Madrabaz is an experience generator; sometimes a culinary trickster; always a cultural
ambassador. In Turkey, a Madrabaz’s mission was to bring food from all over the world
to the tables of many. The Madrabaz helped people to learn, understand, enjoy and
love food and its multicultural sources and influences. This is the inspiration behind Madrabaz,
led by Gökcen Ceylan. We of Madrabaz want to create that exciting link between cultures.
