VANCOUVER — Interested in taking a trip to mysterious, multicultural Turkey with one of Vancouver’s most respected chefs? Well, John Bishop wants to hear from you.
This September, the acclaimed chef and restaurateur who has been packing them in at Bishop’s for years, is setting off on a 16-day adventure through Turkey, and he’s looking for company as he explores its historical, cultural and culinary treasures.
Not only will his guests get to cook regional dishes and sharing meals with local chefs, $500 from the sale of each tour package will benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
“Since becoming involved with the JDRF in 2001, I’ve been amazed by the passion and dedication of volunteers, and the relentless focus the JDRF has towards its mission of finding a cure for diabetes,” said Bishop in a press release. “I’m proud to be part of this legacy and look forward to sharing this incredible journey that I’m sure will inspire every traveller.”
There is space for up to 22 guests to join Bishop and help raise money for the cause, which was brought to the chef’s attention by the struggles of his close friends’ son. Guests will be treated to Mediterranean boat tours, shopping, archeological visits and, of course, Turkish cuisine.
