“Interesting if you are a Foodie”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

The building, an old Ottoman mansion, was more interesting than the contents. But it was a charming little place near our hotel, so we went. If you are in town, I recommend going there, but don't expect anything special. Spend your time eating in Gaziantep instead. The food in the town is fabulous.

“Authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2012

This building is originally an old Gaziantep home belonging to one of Turkish minister's. Ermine Gogus is his mother. Gaziantep is very famous for it's food and this place shows you how they are made ,how they are served.

“A museum dedicated to superb Antep cusine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

The museum named after mother of a prominent political figure of town who also donate the family house, and turned it into a culinary museum . Dedicated to inform the regional flavours, way they are prepared and cooked , ingredients and rituels of one of the top cusines in Turkey, the museum is inspiring young generations and visitors of town to seek the labor intensive culinary marvels of Antep cusine.

The 1905 built house is in the old city, south of Gaziantep citadel. Renovated, diligently the two story house has kitchen, cellar, well written information panels both in Turkish and English about different dishes, ingredients, a cafe, books for sale on the first floor , the second floor rooms are dedicated to utensils, pots ( for what they were used for) ,china, cuttlery. The rituels are animated by wax figurines.

The museum has a cafe where you can take a rest and if lucky taste some local delicacies cooked occasionally. There is also a good selection of regional cook books in the cafe .

The museum is easy to reach, has a very symbolic entrance fee easy to navigate and very informative. For a city, where it's cusine is a major attraction, the mission of the museum is to perpetuate the traditional culinary culture for younger generations.

Ask for hours, as they were closing for an hour at noon when we were visiting.
