Istanbul, Turkey

Taking Mother Earth as his inspiration, chef Maksut Aşkar and his young Neolokal kitchen brigade put a glorious spin on Turkish heritage produce in local and global classics. Part of the city’s SALT Galata cultural complex, the restaurant also serves up jaw-dropping views of the Golden Horn through its floor-to-ceiling windows. Neolokal’s supplies come from a farm in nearby Gümüşdere, which practises sustainable farming, and, believing his research should be ‘open source’, Aşkar gives away his recipes online.
