We did the Spice Bazaar and Kadikoy Market tour over the weekend and spent six hours exploring the backstreets and delicious food of Istanbul with Taciser. We learned loads about the history of Istanbul, visited a stunning hidden little Mosque and tried so many different (and delicious) foods including street food, ingredients / spices at market stalls and an enormous...

My husband, 26-year-old son, and I had a terrific day learning to make some scrumptious Turkish dishes with Selin and 4 others. I am not a cook - but still, I came away enthused about how easy it was to prepare these dishes. The feast we enjoyed afterwards was tremendous - when she says 'don't eat a big breakfast,' she...

We had an incredible experience cooking with Selin. There were 8 people in our cooking class and we thoroughly enjoyed the day together at the spice market and back at Selin's home cooking together. Selin was great company, low key, and seemed to really enjoy us too! She also accommodated the vegetarian in our group very easily. This experience is... More

The Turkish Flavours cooking class was a fantastic day - well planned, organized and delivered. A wonderful and relaxing experience and great to have this in a Turkish home. Selin is friendly and warm and her passion for Turkish cuisine is contagious. Highly recommended, regardless of your level of confidence or skill in the kitchen!

Selin's "Turkish Flavours" market tour and cooking class are of the highest professional order. After a tour of the Spice Market you are taken to her beautiful home where a gleaming kitchen, menu, and your own recipe book await you. On the day I went, there were 9 of us around her kitchen island, and we made 9 dishes. Selin... More

I joined Selin for a cooking class - we started in the spice market with a spice tasting (I returned the next day and bought my own supplies) Then it was across to the Asian side and to Selin's apartment where we were tasked with cooking our lunch - I learnt so much - and the food was wonderful -...

THE best thing to do in Istanbul is this tour. We were lucky to have Taciser Ayvaz (Taci) as our guide for the 'Taste Istanbul Food Tour.' Her command of foods, the tastes, the markets, the history, and English was evident in every minute of our tour. Beginning outside the spice market, we learned about cheeses, meats, pickles and the... More

Amazing culinary tour through Istanbul's European and Asian sides. I would recommend to anyone who loves delicious food and profound culture. Our questions and appetite would have overwhelmed any "ordinary" guide, but not Taciser :) She seemed to have so much knowledge and interesting stories to tell us throughout the tour. Moreover, she is a sweetheart, and it was a... More

I just finished the "Istanbul Street Food Walk" and couldn't believe how much I enjoyed myself. The food we tasted was only out done by the amazingcultural and historic insights our guide Taciser Ayvaz (Taci) shared before and after each tasting. Our tour began at the Spice Bazar in Europe and ended after a relaxing ferry ride and a flavorful... More

After visiting the major historic sights on the European side of Istanbul, we wanted to venture to the Asian side and were intrigued by the Turkish Flavours Istanbul Streetfood Walk through the Kadikoy market. Taci met us in front of the Spice Bazaar on the Old City side and a short ferry ride began an amazing tasting experience and education... More
