We signed up for Selin's cooking class based on our neighbor's rave reviews, and the experience lived up to the billing. Selin was a great guide to the otherwise overwhelming Spice Bazaar; because it was a Monday, we got an added bonus of a visit to the once a week farmer's market as well. Selin's dishes were delicious, authentic, and not difficult to recreate at home. The class also afforded the wonderful opportunity to spend time in a Turkish home in a residential area on the non-touristy Asian side of Istanbul. Once the cooking was done, we were able to learn over lunch much about Turkish life and culture. Selin was a most charming and informative guide, teacher and host. Highly recommended!

Thank you for opening your home, Selin, to us in your cooking class in September. We were inspired by your hospitality, excitement of food and your beautiful home. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a unique experience in a bustling city.

We have just come back from this tour with Evrim and are too full to eat tonight!!! It was a great way to start our holiday in Turkey as Evrim was a terrific guide and the Spice Market was a highlight and our wonderful 20+ dishes for lunch were amazing. We had heaps of samples along the way and a trip across the Bosphorus.
If the rest of our Turkey holiday is nearly as good as this we will be very happy.

We had a wonderful food experience with Taciser - she took us around the Spice Bazaar - would recommend visiting Bilge shop No 51 in the Spice Bazaar - she was trained in the USA and therefore excellent english - bought Elysium perfume and plenty of spices and Argun oil for wrinkles and dry skin.
We sampled lots of different turkish meza dishes and had a better overview of istanbul cuisine, history - It was one of the highlights of our stay in Turkey and would recommend to everyone - expensive but worth every cent.

We had a great time on the food tour with Taciser. She took us through the markets and local streets both around the Spice Bazaar and in on the Asian side of Istanbul. We tons of stops - too many for me to even remember - and ate the best food of our trip. She was very knowledgeable and allowed us to sample dishes I never would have tried otherwise, like tripe, that was surprisingly good! I highly recommend this tour.
