My name is Irem Aksu. I am a former news reporter, and currently work as a chef. I have worked with talented chefs to be trained including my inspiring work experience at Ottolenghi Spitalfields since I went into my cooking journey. I am now with e5 bakehouse team – an East London artisan bakery.

With my Topik – Food Without Borders project and catering service I do supper-club series as well as pop-up events in collaboration with the NGOs working in the field of human rights and refugee organisations on joint projects and dining events.
