Ece Caglayan (known online as Mini Yemek) takes miniature cooking to the next level, preparing delicious meals on a scale of 1:12. Based in Istanbul, Turkey, her dishes include traditional Turkish food as well as American fast food. All prepared in a miniature kitchen using only edible ingredients.
“I love watching miniature cooking videos,” said Caglayan in an interview with The Daily Mini. “When I saw that no one from my country had made such videos, I wanted to be the first to do it and I achieved this goal.”
“Mini yemek (or minyatur yemek) means mini food,” she explained. “Turkish food is magnificent and it’s so much more than just kebab! There are lots of materials and cooking techniques. I think I also get to introduce Turkish cuisine to the world in a fun way.”
The first meal she ever prepared was eggplant, which she says was not cooked properly and did not look like what she wanted, as the oven was constantly going off. “But I kept trying!” and people took note, with tens of thousands of fans on her Instagram and YouTube pages.
We highly recommend you follow her on her journey to (miniature) stardom.
