Get to know me better

Cook with Love......

I have been working for 20 years as a professional chef. My love for cooking began at home, learning from my parents. By age 10 I knew that creating new dishes and maintaining the consistency and culture of my families dishes would be a life long passion. I was born and raised in Istanbul, and graduated from culinary school there. I moved United States in 2010, where I began my American chef journey in New Orleans. I’ve developed my menu and flavors by blending my Turkish roots with the incredibly diverse flavors found in New Orleans. My love and passion for cooking continues to grow and I am most fulfilled when others enjoy my food.

Chef Tan's reviews

4.8/ 5

Chef Tan is AMAZING! We were intrigued by all the delicious dishes he proposed. He offered multiple options for each course and was very accommodating to dietary preferences. His communication was great as we prepared for our event. Every dish he prepared was beautiful in presentation and the flavors were incredible! Everyone ate everything on their plate. We are still talking about how delicious it was days afterward. Highly recommend Chef Tan and can’t wait to dine with him again!
