Our family had a wonderful cooking experience creating from scratch a flavorful Turkish dinner 4/4/21, despite the pandemic. The spice market was closed and it was too cold for the ferry but all this was made up for by our teacher chef, Taciser! We all recommend this fun and personal experience!

Taciser took us on a tour of the 2 continents starting at the Spice Bazaar, and then catching a ferry to the Kadıköy where we saw another market and had lunch at Ciya. The food was delicious and she made sure that the food covered a range of food we had been telling her we wanted to try. It was a fantastic tour, she explained so much about cooking techniques, ingredients and history. She also had excellent food recommendations. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We enjoyed our food tour so much. The spice market was so colourful and smelled so good...We got to taste so many things. Our guide, Taciser, was very helpful and told us a lot of interesting things about Turkish cuisine. Our tour ended with a wonderful lunch in Ciya and we highly recommend this restaurant.

Unfortunately everyone scheduled on my tour cancelled due to coronavirus concerns. Fortunately for me, I had a solo tour ! Great walkthrough the spice bazaar with an in depth explanation of all spices and uses. On to Kadikoy with an amazing lunch at Ciya Sofrasi and other tastings. This was legitimate local and cultural food and was exactly what I was looking for. Mrs. Renan was also extremely helpful with asking her butcher where I could locate a specific knife. She guided me right to it. Amazing tour! Book now !

I was fortunate enough to have a solo cooking class with Selin and also a solo food tour with Tacsier the following day. Can, Selin’s husband, met me at the spice market for a quick tour which was beautiful and delicious! and then took me via ferry to their home on the Asian side. Selin and Can were so gracious and welcoming and the dishes we cooked were very approachable and of course, yummy! We made stuffed Swiss Chard rolls, braised leeks and carrots, lightly fried pastry stuffed with feta and herbs and some cream filled dried apricots with chopped pistachios. I even got to go home with some leftovers! The following evening I met Tacsier and we took the ferry back to the Asian side for a fun food tour! We went into small restaurants, small markets, candy shops, pastry shops, fish mongers, you name it! I would do both of these classes/tours again and would recommend them to anyone visiting Istanbul. Selin and Tacsier and so nice and full of recommendations on how to fill the rest of your time. Thank you!
