POST- VALENTINE LOVIN' (oneself) (Istanbul)

Protected content

Fine, you didn’t get the loving that you know you deserve – from someone you thought would know better. Well, too bad for him or her!...because if there’s anyone who knows how to love you the best…why, it’s you yourself! So…why not

SAVE the date…for our 33rd F&BGI event with self-indulgence as the theme?

Because you deserve it.

Assembly cocktails – 7:30pm Saturday, 25 February Protected content
Sit-down dinner – 8pm sharp.
LALEDAN, Ciragan Palace Kempinski
Ciragan Caddesi 32, Besiktas Protected content

This time, we’re carrying on from the last dinner (at Lokanta Maya) with Turkish flavours reinterpreted in serendipitous culinary ways unlike you’ve tasted before, to be served as SET MENU of hot and cold mezzes (inspired mainly from Gaziantep and Hatay) and a choice of fish (sea bass or dorado) or fillet mignon (yes! a steak for a change).

Afterwards, for the sweet toothed among us (especially moi) there’s a BUFFET of various desserts as well as bottomless coffee or tea.

But where’s the indulgence, you ask?

Now, now…get a hold of yourselves because…ready?... we’ll be treated to LIMITLESS wines from not one, not two but SEVEN different countries: Argentina, Australia, Chile, France, Italy, South Africa and Spain - courtesy of ADCO Fine Wines. All the wines that could raise the temperature of a Saturday night fever for sure :)

Again, as I said, all because you deserve and owe it to yourself.

Besides aren’t we Food & BEVERAGE Group Istanbul?

Anyway, something this unusually good has a price that’s unusually reasonable (do the math about the unlimited imported wines): 145TL (VAT included) CASH PAYMENT ONLY.

Limited Guests Capacity of 25 Food & Beverage Group Istanbul members and 5 Internations expat foodies only

Please…dinner dressing (like you’re dressing for a date) is requested because the place reeks of self-indulgence ***wink*** and self-loving.
