We spent a day with Asli as an excursion from a Windstar cruise. It was an amazing experience, from the morning visit to a local market to touring her beautifully set up apartments, helping to prep the ingredients, watching her and her assistant cook the food and, last but definitely not least, eating the results. Turkish markets offer a wealth of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as spices, dried fruits and nuts and freshly-made filo. Because Asli knows the vendors, we were able to sample all sorts of treats. The excursion is limited to a small group (there were six of us) so everyone was very much involved in the whole process. The food was delicious and included some exotic (to us) ingredients such as cranberry beans. One couple was celebrating their anniversary on the cruise so Asli even provided a cake.
