While in Istanbul, why not take the time to learn some delicious Turkish recipes which you can share with your friends and family when you return home? The class is held in the hotel's kitchen and features a local chef as instructor. During the four-hour class, you will prepare a five-course meal of traditional dishes. Recipes are provided for your keeping and the group enjoys a delicious meal of their own creation in the rooftop restaurant at the end of the session. Come with your own group or meet new people in the class. The class size, ranging from 4 to 10, allows for each person to actively participate in the food preparation.

Everyone participated in the food preparation - traditional Turkish food - along with many tips from Chef Mehmet. The end of the class was lunch on the rooftop terrace with his staff serving us the food we... More

I went to the cooking class with 9 other women:) They were my clients, so it was really important to me. The chef Mehmet and his cook did thier best. We had a great time- working together and learning new things. It was the first time ( I go to cooking school when abroad) when the chef sat and ate... More

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

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
