Hollywood’s biggest and brightest stars dined on a spread of the finest Turkish cuisine at this year’s Oscars. A result of successful negotiations spearheaded by the Turkey ONE Association, a significant number of traditional Turkish dishes were incorporated into the awards night menu, thereby boosting global recognition and popularity of Turkey’s culinary delights.


‘We are very proud to have some of Turkey’s favourite foods served up at the Oscars. Each year we work towards increasing the variety of Turkish dishes included at the event, and it is owing to the untiring efforts of the Turkey ONE Association and the Gastronomy Committee that this was possible. We appreciate their hard work, and are delighted to have our culture be a part of this legendary night,’said.


Established in 2014, the Turkey ONE Association was formed with the prescript to promote Turkey internationally, while protecting its cultural heritage, and historical and natural wealth. Promoting Turkish cuisine falls under the purview of the organisation, and including Turkish food at high-profile events such as the Oscars is part of their outreach.
