Today, we hosted Chef Olivier Pistre, currently Executive Chef of the Shangri-La Hotels in Besiktas, in our kitchen where he gave us the demonstration of a wonderful seasonal recipe – fried pumpkin purée. We had the most fun while we carefully listened, observed, chatted and got to taste the dessert in the end. Chef Pistre told us that the main reason why he chose this recipe was because it reminded him of his childhood. I hope that you will be able to connect with the recipe as well!
