Adil Çakıcı

Executive Pastry Chef

Chef Çakıcı was inspired to the culinary arts by his father, who enjoyed a long career as a chef at local restaurants. Çakıcı doesn’t overload guests, preferring to serve smaller-sized international desserts and traditional Turkish pastries crafted “with a twist” and no more than a couple of teaspoons of sugar per temptation. He takes guests’ suggestions to heart to create new tastes.
