Selin was amazing. Her Turkish Flavours cooking class was one of the top highlights of our trip (I recommend it highly!). We prepared a full meal under her guidance. While we were chopping and cooking, Selin was offering tips and instructions, plus insights into Turkish culture and cuisine. It was obviously that she has perfected her instructional technique because the class was extraordinarily well orchestrated in every detail -- she knows what she is doing!! (By the way, the class was just me and my female-life-partner, so there were only two of us. The term class may be slightly misleading because it was more along the lines of personal cooking instruction.) If you're into cooking and dining, Selin is excellent resource for teaching you about Turkish spices as well as the Turkish spice palette which is much different than the American spice palette. The next day after our cooking class we had a wonderful, short tour of the Grand Bazaar with Turkish Flavours leading the way. This is essential if you're thinking about serious shopping in the Grand Bazaar. There are so many shops it is dizzying.Turkish Flavours took as to some of the best ones, those shops with quality merchandise.
