Until the 1850s, meat dishes were cooked as horizontal grill or twist. Then, the famous kebab master Hamdi Usta from Kastamonu went into a different search and began to cook the horizontally cooked meat vertically by putting the meat on top of one another. Thus, "Döner Kebap" was invented by turning the kebab facing the vertical rotisserie around and cutting it thinly. This meal, which was previously known as "döner kebap" in public language, has nowadays been recognized simply as "döner" and has become world food. "What gives the flavor to döner is the quality of the meat and it is the skill of the experienced masterchef to cook it thoroughly." It is Hamdi Usta from Kastamonu, who is the inventor of döner in 1850s. Hamdi Usta, who became a recognized name thanks to the food (döner) he invented and the generations he grew up, brought this taste to daylight.
