Description

Experience Turkish hospitality at its finest as you learn to prepare a fresh and creative Turkish meal with an accomplished home cook. In Selda's comfortable, contemporary apartment (with beautiful Bosphorus views!) she will teach you her secrets to cooking wholesome, modern Turkish cuisine using the freshest produce and the occasional surprise ingredient.

You will be warmly welcomed into Selda's tastefully decorated apartment in the upscale neighborhood of Ulus. Join her in her modern kitchen for a hands-on lesson of her favorite seasonal recipes. As you cook together she will tell you about the origins of the dishes she prepares and how she experiments with incorporating non-traditional ingredients into dishes to create her signature cooking style. 

Your meal might start with a soup (warm in winter or chilled in summer) and then you'll taste dishes such as Selda's savory karnıyarık (eggplant stuffed with minced meat and vegetables served on top of pillowy bulgur wheat), zeytinyağlı taze fasulye (green beans cooked in olive oil, a Turkish staple), börek filled with chard (a recipe passed down from her husband's mother), all accompanied by a garden-fresh salad.

Selda is adept at converting classic recipes to accommodate many dietary restrictions or preferences, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free diets.
