Description

Learn to cook from a local in this private 4-hour cooking class in an Istanbul home. The friendly mother-daughter team of Nuray and Ipek will introduce you to the delights of Turkish home cooking. Join them in learning how to prepare içli köfte (stuffed bulgar meatballs), karniyarik (eggplant stuffed with mincemeat and tomatoes), barbunya pilaki (beans stewed in a tomato and lemon sauce), and more. Help out with tasks such as chopping vegetables, wrapping börek, and frying eggplant, then sit down with your hosts to enjoy your freshly prepared meal with a glass of local wine.

Learn to prepare Turkish specialties under Nuray’s expert eye. Within minutes of your arrival you will be frying eggplant, chopping fresh vegetables, and wrapping börek. Relax under Nuray’s effortless skill, and benefit from her extensive experience and knowledge. After cooking, enjoy the fruits of your labor along with a few dishes Nuray will have prepared in advance.

Your meal will likely begin with a seasonal soup, chilled in summer and warm in winter. Follow it up with dishes such as içli köfte (stuffed bulgar meatballs, also known as kibbeh), cheese börek (a cheese-filled pastry), yogurt lu ispanak (spinach and yogurt), barbunya pilaki (beans stewed in a tomato and lemon sauce), karniyarik (eggplant stuffed with mincemeat and tomatoes), and a homemade dessert served with traditional Turkish coffee.

Leave the table with new recipes, new friends, and an unforgettable experience in Istanbul. This class is intended as an authentic cultural experience with a local, rather than as a professional cooking class. Nuray and Ipek live very close to Ataturk International Airport, and a visit to their home makes a convenient stop on your way in or out of town.
