Sb, goethe, goethe.

This is me that absolutely must roned at any reference to german culture. So let it be mentioned here!

It is true too, let’s face it: There’s nobody quite like Goethe. The dramas, like ‘Dr. Faustus’ and ‘Gotz von Berlichingen’(The Knight with the Iron Hand), of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) are still performed in theaters today. His poems and novels like The Sorrows of Young Werther are still printed and even read.

But it is not the works he produced as poet, writer, theorist and natural scientist that make him such an absolute sine qua non. With his universality and holistic view of nature, Goethe rose above the Catholic-Protestant conflict in which Central Europe had been locked since the 16th century and above the debates between clerics and men of the Enlightenment that were added to it in the 18th century, to become a towering figure who blazed new paths in German culture. Naturally Goethe did not acco

Taner Alakus

Prof. Dr. Cicek Derman

Art comes into being when training, effort and patience interlock. In our traditional arts especially, the purpose of art is not to produce works but to turn ourselves into a work of art that will enhance our moral character. If art is made with the joy and ardor of worship, the result will be magnificent.

Taner Alakus

Art is the spiritual connection between teacher and student. Just as art is the sultan of the spirit, so the practicing artist must be the humblest among those spirits. Art is the artist’s own paradise.

Yrd. Doc. Huseyin gunduz

For art lovers and calligraphy buffs, a beautiful inscription is a beautiful picture. For the artist who creates the work, it reflects his inner world on paper in lines, shapes, colors and beautiful words. Calligraphy is a language. It gives rise to a silent communication between people whether they know that language or not.

Italian Pasta

Italians have accorded pasta prominent status in their many regional cuisines.

One of the first foodstuffs to be manufactured commercially, pasta is universally popular. No one knows for sure when pasta entered the cuisines of the world or who invented it. But the Italians can certainly be credited with developing its manifold varieties and spreading them around the world. Every form of dough that is rolled thin and cooked on a hot metal surface can be regarded as a forerunner of pasta.

According to researchers on the subject, it is highly probable that pasta emerged around the same time in all parts of the world where flat bread was made. Perceiving as well-nigh miraculous the benefits of yeast for adding volume to bread made with flour in times when it was almost impossible to find economical foodstuffs that also kept well, mankind developed some extraordinary religious rituals revolving around yeast. In her ‘Dictionary of Ottoman Cuisine’, Priscilla Mary I

Soup diet

The way to lose weight is to increase the distance between energy intake and energy expenditure. Low-energy soups are more filling as they repress the hunger center. According to nutritionist and diet expert Selahattin Donmez, the soup diet will enable you to lose six kilograms in one month providing prevention against chronic illnesses, preventing dryness of the skin by increasing water in the body, and decreasing tension in the stomach. There is no other type of food offering such high nutritional value and is so filling in one meal. We recommend consuming a variety of healthy salads and the same goes for soups. For 10 years, I have started my afternoon and evening meals with a bowl of soup. Because you eat soup with a spoon and chew, it starts making you feel full in your mouth. And because it coats the stomach lining with a warm wave it prevents acid production in the stomach. It prepares the stomach for the digestion of the rest of the meal.
