I would say this experience was good. The owner of the shop gave us a a very authentic experience of Turkish cuisine which I really enjoyed. Some of the dishes were complicated and I really enjoyed making them. The instruction was very good too. I think that overall the class was great, and the operator of the class needs to... More

My friend and I went for the cooking class while in Istanbul. We had a total of 4 students, and it was a great class. Mehmhet and the sous chef had perfect timing for food preparation and good senses of humor. The food was delicious, and he made a special separate dish for me since I did not eat the... More

My husband and I had a great time at this cooking class. It was small on the day we attended, so it was really easy to ask questions and get one-on-one help. The recipes we made were interesting, flavorful and used a lot of fresh ingredients. We learned many techniques that are not common in American cooking. I would recommend... More

Before this class, my husband rarely cooked. He had so much fun, he is now inspired to cook with me. We will be preparing a... More

My friend and I took the cooking class in August 2012. POSITIVE: We had a friendly introduction round with the group and got into our cooking-outfits. They explained the plan for the day and then we already started preparing and cutting. The staff was incredibly funny and the group really enjoyed the class. When finished with cooking, we were served... More

We very much enjoyed this cooking class during our stay in Istanbul. We were very lucky in that the other couple scheduled for the class had to cancel due to illness and that meant we were the only two people in the class and received very personalized service from Mehmet and his chef. You get to work in the actual... More

What a wonderful time we had taking this class! The food was great! Mehmet provided detailed instructions and demonstrations and we had hands on preparation work. There were 5 of us as participants, which was an ideal number as the kitchen was small. Yes, we prepared 5 courses, and I will be making them when I get back home. We... More

This was my first cooking class and I enjoyed it! Chef and Instructor were very professional and patient!! Learned some new things to bring back home with me. I would advise this class, however, 6 in the class is just the right size, any more would be crowded.
