>> Whipping up lentil soup in her kitchen, Gulverine a mother of two, is preparing a meal. Not for a friend or relative, but for a busy professional across the city. She's one of an army of cooks, working with a new delivery service in Istanbul, which could do to take aways what Airbnb did to hotels.
Mama Me connects hungry workers with a little taste of home by zipping a mother's cooking straight to your door. The website telling customers if you're missing mom's food, you're in the right place.>> With the food ready to go, it'll now be delivered to a nearby office. On average, these home cooked meals feed six to eight people, and Gruvan is one of 75 women cooking for people all over Istanbul.
The mothers tend to work three to four days a week, a chance for many to make some extra cash by throwing a few more pots on the stove for lunch and dinner.
> I put in a lot of of orders at the office because it's cooked by a mother and we're literally eating a mother's meal.
This is also a big support for my family when I'm out of town. I order meals in high numbers when I invite friends over and it's a great support for me as a working mother.>> The founder of Mama Me says the mothers really get to know the customers, sometimes, slipping them notes or a little sweet treat.
>> Eve Rim hopes to one day expand to Europe. With Germany's big Turkish population, a first target for 2018.
