Your Trip to Istanbul

Your Trip to Istanbul

You are dreaming of a trip to Istanbul, but you don't know how to start planning. We can inspire you and help you get started. After our travels to Istanbul, we have lots to share with you. You will learn about the famous Spice Market and delve into Turkish cuisine with dishes like pides (Turkish pizza), kebabs (grilled meat in Turkish), its mezze, spices and desserts including the famous baklava.

In our NEW travel series cooking classes, you will get tips:

  • Where to stay where you can cook like a local

  • Where to shop like a local

  • Best apps for offline navigation and foodie exploring

  • Best foodie sites

  • Best off the beaten track restaurants where the locals frequent

Class Time: 6 pm to 8:30 pm

What to Expect in our classes:

Great cooking isn't about recipesβ€”it's about techniques. In our classes, you'll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by our professional chef instructors.

  • Hands-on classes led by an experienced Chef

  • Learn fundamental skills for a lifetime of great cooking

  • Work side-by-side with other students to prepare each dish

  • Interact with the Chef for a rich learning experience

  • Classes are 2 to 2.5 hours unless otherwise noted above

  • Held in our state of the art catering facility

  • Intimate classes, limited to 10 participants

  • Each student enjoys a generous taste of every dish with a glass of wine or a cocktail depending on the menu.


Menus may not be the same as stated in the overview due to seasonality and availability of ingredients. However, the final menu will remain true to the theme of the course.

If due to unforeseen circumstances, this class has to be moved to another date, you will be notified at least 2 working days before the class. 

There is no refund for the class, however, if for any reason you have to cancel the class and you let us know 5 working days before the scheduled class, you can reschedule for another class of your choice.

If you have to cancel at the last minute, please send a friend in your place.
