Our Story

Once upon a time there was a girl who was in love with countries she hasn’t been before, places she
didn’t know yet, cultures she hasn’t met …
Once upon a time there was a girl with a wanderers soul, a girl who was after the unseen, the unknown, a
girl who wanted to make memories all over the world by revealing secret spots, meeting local characters
and exploring their private spaces, eating their food…
Once upon a time there was a girl who believed that food was an expression of the land and that it was
the best way to meet people to enrich her connection to the place she was…
She knew, she was not the only one thinking that way. Inspired by her own dreams as a traveller one day
that girl decided that she should provide strangers the opportunity to get underneath the skin of Istanbul,
her hometown… Through LiveGlobalEatLocal today she provides access to the private spaces of unique
local characters for a home cooked authentic meal, served around big tables with warm and friendly
