Chef Sinem Özler
Chef Sinem Özler comes from an Istanbul family with roots in the Thessaloniki-Erzurum synthesis. She has a career unrelated to cooking. After graduating from Antalya High School and the Advertising and Desktop Publishing Department of Istanbul University, she began her career in the customer relations department of an advertising agency. After 10 years of managing advertising agencies, she entered the food and beverage industry as a manager. Although her career at Seraf initially started as a manager when she crossed paths with her current partner Doğan Yıldırım in 2015, her adventure in Seraf kitchen as a chef began within the first 3 years due to the departure of 3 different chefs and Doğan Bey’s encouragement.

After such a brave, even crazy decision, Chef Sinem’s chef days begin, where she arrives in the kitchen before the staff at 7:00 am every morning and travels throughout Turkey in search of unique recipes and the best ingredients, which is challenging but enjoyable at the same time, and she never loses her smile despite any difficulties.
