Americans, get ready to experience life on “the bridge between East and West.” Turkey lies directly between Eastern Europe and Western Asia, and it represents a mix of cultural mores that make it unique. As Istanbul Cultural Center Orlando brings its third annual Turkish Food Festival to Orlando, our community can get a taste of Turkish cuisine, which represents the nation’s diversity. Although the names may get your tongue twisted, there’s sure to be some köfte (balls or patties of ground beef or lamb) or börek (pastries filled with minced meat or spinach and cheese) to help you deliciously engage with Turkish culture. 

noon-5 p.m. Sunday, April 10 | Istanbul Cultural Center Orlando, 940 S. Winter Park Drive, Casselberry | 321-203-2191 | istanbulcenterorlando.org | free
