Lovely Day in the Hills Above Sarajevo
Jun 2020
I had the loveliest day at Mersiha and Mustafa's house learning about Bosnian cooking. We were high in the hills above Sarajevo and arrived to an amazing treat of fresh homemade juice, warm baked bread, local cheeses, and jams. From there we proceeded to make stuffed peppers and onions and grape leaves and also learned the art of making burek-the national dish. Throughout there was great company, wine, and lots of learning. It was a true pleasure. I highly recommend to anyone looking for an adventure in Sarajevo.

Bosnian Cooking Course
Nov 2019
Had such a great day cooking with Mersiha and Mustafa.
We went up to their house in the hills, with a stunning view over Sarajevo.

Was really treated like a guest in their house, it felt like going to a friends place for they day.
We made Burak and Dolma. Both of which we’ve attempted afterwards at home. The Burak is a bit tricky but worth it. The Dolma we now make quite frequently. And is delicious.

Have done a few cookery classes in different places around the world but this was truly a special and welcoming experience.
After eating our goodies and having a few more drinks we stayed and chatted to Mersiha and Mustafa about there life growing up in Bosnia Herzegovina.

Highly recommend the experience worth every Mark($,€,£).
If I was in Sarajevo again I’d definitely do it again. Need to perfect my Burak technique.

Exceptionally Authentic and Delicious Experience!
Dec 2019
I have taken cooking classes in Greece, Japan, Belgium, and elsewhere around the world, but never in my life have I had an experience as wonderful as this one with Mersiha! Hands down, one of the most authentic, inspiring, and delicious travel experiences of my life. The cooking lesson was peppered with Mersiha's amazing and inspiring stories of life in Sarajevo, of the horrors she experienced during the siege, and of the success she has started to have building this business with her husband, Mustafa. Each step of the cooking process was expertly explained, with helpful tutorials and suggestions (and ample local spirits to enjoy). But the real treat is the authenticity with which Mersiha approaches her lessons. I felt like a part of her family, sharing stories over a glass of wine while her and I (and her wonderful mother!) all cooked together in her kitchen, with a view of Sarajevo out the window. This is why we seek out these opportunities. It is why we travel at all, really. And this is one experience you absolutely must not miss out on! I cannot recommend it enough!

Most Fun and Delicious Thing I Did in Bosnia
Feb 2020
Mersiha is a fantastic cook and now I sort of am, too. :) We made two dishes: Burek, one of the two national dishes that's a stuffed meat or vegetable pie in filo dough, and stuffed vegetables roasted in tomato sauce. We made the filo dough from scratch. It started out as a little ball and ended up as a super thin sheet of dough that she stretched over all 4 corners of the table, with lots of tips and tricks for getting it that thin without poking a finger through the dough and how to not panic if you do make a hole. I'd had both of these dishes in several restaurants in Sarajevo, but Mersiha's (and mine) were so much better than anything I'd previously tasted that they kind of redefined them for me. Mersiha and Mustafa are sweet and interesting people who grow all of their own produce. Sharing time with them in their home and kitchen felt like being with good friends. I highly recommend this class!

Best burek/pita we have ever eaten!
Jan 2020 • Friends
This was the first time we booked a cooking class and we loved it from the very first minute! Mersiha and Mustafa are lovely people and we felt welcome and cosy the entire time. As we are originally from Bosnia, we can say this was the best pita/burek we have ever eaten! So crunchy, so delicious, so good! Can‘t wait to try Mersiha‘s recipes back home! Thank you so much!

5 Stars Is Not Enough !!
Dec 2019
If you are considering whether you should book this cooking class -- DO IT! What a truly authentic hands on experience. Having never been to Sarajevo I wanted to fully understand the culture. Merisha provided education regarding the Bosnian specialties, how to prepare and eat these specialties. We made stuffed onions, peppers and mangel leaves to start then burek and a potato pie-- all from scratch. Each course was perfectly paired with fabulous Bosnian wine. It was so delicious and fun! Not only did we learn how to prepare these traditional dishes, but we were able to connect on a personal level. I broaden my knowledge about the history of not only Sarajevo but Bosnia, as well. Such a fascinating country! We had such a great time, that I even attempted to make everything at home the following week. We spent all day at her and her husbands beautiful house on top of a hill 10 minutes from Sarajevo. I truly hope I return to Sarajevo very soon to take this class again. I highly, highly recommend this class. I honestly can not say enough great things.

Learn how to cook like a Bosnian
Merisha is a lovely person that gave us a great insight into bosnian cuisine in a relaxed ambiance. We enjoyed a lot to discover traditional and local plates (appetizers, main meals and desserts) and drinks (brandy, beer, red wine)

So, if you like to cook, to eat delicious "homemade" food, to discover Bosnian cuisine and to have funny and interesting discussions : just go and meet Merisha and Mustafa at there house on the hills with a breathtaking view on the beautiful city of Sarajevo.

Most Memorable!
Nov 2019
Our group of 10 booked a Bosnian Cooking Lesson with Mersiha and Mustafa for 11/29/19 and had the most amazing time. We learned a lot, had so much fun and can’t thank Mersiha, Mustafa and Enisa IMersiha’s Mom) for making this the experience of a lifetime. They made relatively complex recipes seem doable, shared information about how to use every part of the ingredients, and generally encouraged us to try new things. The food was fabulous, and it was an absolute pleasure to spend the evening with this couple and her mother. The view of Sarajevo from their living room was stunning as well. It is a must see (and do) for Sarajevo!
