Having resigned from a table-top job and started his career as a passionate and imaginative cooker, Alaçatı Barbun started to work in the restaurant, but instead of going to any cooking school he chose to improve himself with the books he brought from abroad. In the year 2013, he started to be the head of Turkey's first research and test kitchen in the field of "Alancha" founded by one of the most important brand leaders of Turkey, Kemal Demirasal. In Turkey, he has spent all his energy in researching the equipment used in the laboratories, Anatolian materials and food culture, developing new cooking techniques and amazing flavor components in Turkey. Moreover, in countries such as Italy, Spain and Greece, exhibitions of examples from the Anatolian cuisine are being organized in organizations organized under the leadership of the best chefs of the world
