The Turkish Delight: Mert Tansu

Play episode

Mert Tansu started as a college Basketball player who switched gears to the surprise of his family and started a career as a chef in fine dining. His passion for cooking brought him from Turkey to the US and on to his final destination in Australia. The natural progression from cooking to knifemaking made him one of the most respected knifemakers among his peers. It was a great talk and we covered a lot of ground in a shortened podcast.
