What to Expect
A great way to learn about different cultures and traditions is through the food. The individuality of Turkey's dishes, and the cherished traditions and rich history that surround them, will help you to discover more about this fascinating country and its people.

The cookery class will give you an in-depth understanding of Turkey’s food and way of life, as you are guided through culinary traditions.

In this three-hour class, you will cook and taste traditional Turkish food such as soups (mercimek çorba, tarhana çorba), mezes (starters, various vegetables cooked with olive oil), dolma (grape leaves stuffed with rice), main courses (mantı, güveç, karnıyarık, köfte), and desserts such as irmik helvası (semolina pudding) and kabak tatlısı (pumpkin dessert).

You will also find out about spices, olive oils, cheeses, coffee and tea, all of which is aimed at helping you to recreate the recipes when you get home. Come and enjoy this experience, so you can create the taste of your holiday long after it is over.
