TURKEY DAY IN TURKEY? CONRAD INSTANBUL SERVES UP A SLICE OF AMERICANA ... JUST IN TIME FOR THANKSGIVING

 ISTANBUL, Turkey, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Looking for a new twist on Thanksgiving? The Conrad Istanbul hotel will offer a special Country Western Food Festival from Nov. 22 to Nov. 28. The festival, more than 5,000 miles from Plymouth Rock, will celebrate American culture with country western food, music and entertainment.
 "Only in Istanbul can one bridge cultures so seamlessly and with such style," said Norbert Spichtinger, managing director of the Conrad Istanbul. "It is part of the unusual charm of Istanbul that 'an all- American' turkey dinner with stuffing seems perfectly natural amidst centuries-old mosques and palaces. Our festival will allow guests to celebrate the American culture, while discovering an exciting new world."
 The festival, co-sponsored by Wrangler, will be held at Conrad Istanbul's Gulizar Cafe. Menu items, specially prepared by Conrad Istanbul's famed chefs, will include such American staples as turkey with stuffing, fried chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, barbecue ribs, T-bone steak, potato salad, cole slaw and even ice cream sundaes. Executive Chef Michael Re received his training in Beverly Hills, where he spent several years at the Beverly Hills Country Club. Staff will be dressed in country western garb and entertainment will include American, country western music.
