The spice tasting was a treat and Selin's home was very welcoming. we had a group of 7 people and there was plenty of room and plenty... More

On our second trip to Istanbul we'd seen all the major sights but wanted to learn more about making Turkish food, so we signed up with Selin. Great decision! She met our group of four promptly at 9:30 am outside the Spice Market. The day begins at a spice business that has been in one family for generations. You won't... More

Excellent tour with Taci trying street food on the Asian side of Istanbul. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took us to a variety of interesting places to eat and shops to visit. The street food tour was the highlight of our trip to Istanbul for my husband and we would have no hesitation in recommending - if you have... More

This was the best food I had in Istanbul, and the exciting thing is now I know how to make all of it (thanks to the cookbook). Selim runs a very professional business with a touch of familial comfort. Her apartment was beautiful, the food was exquisite, and the fellow travelers in our class were friendly and interesting. I don't... More

We had great fun at our Turkish cooking class. We especially enjoyed the spice tasting at the Spice Market to begin the class. It was an interesting International group of foodies. Selin did a fine job leading the group though the prep, cooking, and eating.

Started at the Istanbul Spice Market on the European side learning about various Turkish spices and teas; finished up on the Asian side, touring the fish, meat, fruit, vegetable, and sweets stalls and shops of the Kadikoy market area, tasting along the way. Finished up at restaurant Ciya Sofrasi... More

We did the street food tour with Turkish Flavours, and our guide was Ms. Taciser. It was the best activity we did in Turkey. First of all, our guide was delightful. A real sweetheart, and fun to talk to and explore with. Secondly, the food we had was incredibly good--and we got to eat so many things we wouldn't have... More

We had a wonderful day with Seline. Spice tasting in the market was a real treat. I brought back more than I should have but have already cooked with them multiple times and sharing the spices with friends has turned out to be a great gift. The cooking class was hands on and a lot of fun. Of course the... More

Wow! What a fabulous day; first learning about local spices then applying their magic in the kitchen. I would recommend this experience for it's fun, not a tourist trap, authentic holiday pleasure. Made my trip to Istanbul richer and more real.
