Hollywood actor Mem Ferda on cover of new issue of T-VINE

After a lengthy break, the print issue of T-VINE Magazine is back! Gracing our new front cover is actor and producer Mem Ferda. He opens up about his family life, including losing his sister to cancer, and his onscreen adventures.

Also in Issue 10 are interviews with top West End chef Hus Vedat and award-winning landscape architect Nilüfer Danış, as well as previews of the CONIFA World Cup, which starts on 31 May and features North Cyprus, and this year’s Turkish Cypriot Cultural Festival taking place on Saturday 17 June.

In Education Matters, we get to quiz top education law specialists Match Solicitors about the legal rights of parents and students when squaring up to schools and universities. In ‘An Ottoman history of vaccination’ Dr Egemen Tezcan writes about how the Ottomans discovered vaccination at least a century before an English doctor first published his findings, and the link between the two.

There’s our regular round-up of news from the British Turkish community, Turkey and North Cyprus, cultural reviews, a trip Down Under in our Get Away section, and a guide on taking vitamins and supplements by pharmacist Feriha Ibrahim.   Pembe Osman steps in for Yonca Ali for Ask Your Abla,  and businesswoman and Conservative Party activist Gonul Daniels shares her family recipe for Şeftali Kebab, taken from her cookbook The Turkish Kitchen.
