I always thought there was a need for a website that would convey all the current news, and local information in English to expats, as well as tourists visiting Kalkan, and I think you do it very well.

2nd Lycian Food Festival in Kalkan

The 2nd Lycian Food festival took place in Kalkan on Wednesday 3rd June, and it was a big success.

Thousands of people turned out to sample Kalkan's finest food and to be entertained by local dancers and musicians.

The weather was not too unkind - a bit cloudy but still quite warm, and importantly there was no rain to dampen our spirits.

This culinary extravaganza took place down at the harbour.  The ongoing redevelopment work near the beach meant that everything had to be set up at the other end of the harbour, close to Marina restaurant and the Coast Guard.

There was a friendly competition between a number of Kalkan chefs and the results are shown below.

Main Course winners
The joint winners were Murat Gediman (Coriander restaurant) and Şakir Çınar (Gourmet restaurant), and runners up Isa Mutlu (Paprika restaurant) and Bayram Çıralı (Alternatif restaurant).

Dessert winners
The top two places were won by students from the Hotel and Tourism College in Kaş - first was Dursade Uysal and second was Cansel Albay, with Carola Bicakci from Cafe Vita in third place.

A popular event
Well done to Mustafa Akdeniz, the President of the Kalkan Restaurant Association and to the rest of his team for organising such a popular event.

We have a number of photos from the day that will give you a flavour of the atmosphere.
