We will be meeting at the famous Arnavutköy jetty at 11 am (Hotel pick-up and drop off are also available with additional charge which depends on your location.) We will be taking a short walk around the beautiful neighbourhood famous with historic wooden houses with lovely sea breeze. I will give you a short introduction about Istanbul, our history and culture. On the way home, we will do a little shopping to buy fresh ingredients from our old local grocery.
When we reach my home, you will be having a tradional welcome drink before we start our fun cooking class! We will be cooking together; however if you don’t want to participate, but just watch as an observer, this is also fine...
We will start with cooking çiğ börek (pastry) and prepare salad before we move on to the main course mantı (dumplings).
We will be eating together on a beautifully prepared table front of a an amazing Bosphorus view.
Of course, a good Turkish lunch doesn’t end without a dessert. You will be testing a surprise traditional Turkish dessert and home-brewed Turkish coffee/tea.
