Chef Cem Demirhan, Nineteen61

Chef Cem Demirhan is Turkish-American. As a first-generation American, born in New York, Cem Demirhan lived his life infusing cultures. This is something that has translated into his professional career and passion for food. Cem spent most of his summers with his mother’s side of the family. His grandmother was an exceptional cook. She helped introduce him to a wide variety of bold flavors found in Turkish Cuisine, which helped him develop an intricate palate from an early age. Cem also spent most of his life in kitchens. Whether in his grandmother’s kitchens or kitchens in his father’s restaurants, Cem grew up no stranger to the aura and culture of good food and the restaurant culture. Being introduced to the restaurant scene allowed him to develop an understanding for not only the art of food, but also the full concept and operation of a successful restaurant.
