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

We spent the day with Taci starting at the Spice Bazaar, followed by a ferry ride to the Asian side at Kadikoy, a walk through the Kadikoy market followed by a meze lunch at the Ciya restaurant consisting of around 20 dishes (we did not eat dinner that night). Along the way, we stopped at various places where Taci explained... More

This was our first trip ever to Istanbul and given our limited time, we wanted to cover off as much as we can and decided that the Europe/Asia street good tour would be a good way to kick things off - Taci was amazing and we connected with her immediately - due to off season in December, we were the...

Due to our short time in Istanbul, we reserved a street food tour on our first night in town. We met up with Taci easily in front of the Spice Bazaar - as it was the off season, it ended up just being us and her, which was a nice treat! She took us to the Asian side, which ended... More

We spent two weeks in Istanbul. Our day with Selim was tops. Selim has big classes and little classes. As this was the off season, Selim had a little class of just my wife and I (followed by two days of classes of 12 each). Besides the hands on treatment of the small class we got an extra dose of...
