Traditional Turkish Food Cooking in İstanbul City Center
We will meet, do shopping, cook traditional Turkish home food, eat and have great fun together. This experience is not just a cooking class. It is more about exchanging information about our cultures and talking about the social life, culture, religion and politics of us Turks while we cook and eat. It is a 4-hour+ activity. First I will meet you at Osmanbey metro station which is just one station away from Taksim and 20min bus from Eminönü. On the way home, we will shop for some of our ingredients from local sellers. As we arrive at my home, we directly go to the kitchen and begin to cook: - One kind of Main Dish (kuru fasülye or karnıyarık or dolma) - One kind of Rice (bulgur rice) - One kind of Meze or Salad You may have a chance of tasting these dishes somewhere outside but I will also teach you how to cook them. More over it, our whole experience will be a great opportinuty for you to see daily life of Turks. I will provide recipes for you. Also, I will give you all explanations about ingredients, their other uses/applications on different recipes. After we got this main course, we will go back to the kitchen and prepare DESSERT. We will have our dessert of course with Turkish Coffee, and I will show you how to prepare it. Please let me know if you have any allergies or obeying any special diet like vegetarian/vegan.
