You cook five authentic Turkish dishes together with other travellers, under supervision of Eveline and her Turkish chef Feyzi. Our classes are hands-on and fun, as well as informative. They are suitable for both professional chefs and kitchen novices. Afterwards, enjoy your cooking efforts over lunch or dinner with some local wine. We also function as a regular lunch and dinner restaurant, offering a daily-changing four-course menu. Reservations are recommended due to limited space. « less

One of the highlights of our four days in Istanbul! My husband and I were in the morning class - there were 9 students and we had such fun! The class was well organized and instructed in an entertaining manner. The food was delicious! Can't wait to try my recipes at home!

An excellent way to learn Turkish cooking and culture. Well organized, delicious, entertaining and just a great way to spend an evening. Food was fantastic. I learned many new skills and ideas and enjoyed the company of several new friends sitting down to enjoy the meal we prepared together. Eveline and company are wonderful hosts, great teachers and interesting and... More

From the moment we arranged the class online a few weeks ahead, Chef Eveline shared her recommendations on Istanbul dining and activities. Along with five others, my husband and I enjoyed a hospitable, informative and delicious personal experience even better than several classes we took at the CIA in New York. This class was not in the sterile environment of... More

We went there for the cooking class and dinner the day after we arrived in Istanbul. My partner (who doesn't cook) and I (who does) loved the whole thing: the prep, the information about what and how we were doing, and the meal afterwards. An extra bonus was talking to the other people in the class and the supervising chefs... More

We do cooking classes when we travel to dive right into the culture of each country we visit. Cooking Alaturka was a great experience. Our compliments to the staff Mara our host, Nazli the Chef's assistant and Chef Feyzi. The entire team performed with excellence throughout the evening and were most gracious in their teaching technique. I might add that... More

We joined four other people (for a total of six in the group) for the cooking class/dinner. The evening was a lot of fun. Our host was Mara, and Chef Feyzi, who has a wicked sense of humour, helped us amateurs in preparing the ingredients for a wonderful four-course Turkish meal: dried okra soup as the first course, an appetizer...

My family and I did the cooking class + dinner at cooking Alaturka and had a wonderful time. Our host, Eveline, accommodated my vegetarian parents and was charming while leading the cooking portion. We then had dinner as a group which was quite comfortable whether you want to chat with your own party or with others. I highly recommend it!

We came here as a group of 10 business colleagues and had great fun. We spend the morning learning new skills and working our way through the 5 dishes ready for lunch. The instructions were clear and well explained. The quality of the ingredients was first class and the chef is very funny. Well worth a trip.
