This cooking class was one of the highlights of my trip to Istanbul. Aishan took us on a wonderful tour of the Pangalti neighborhood and then guided us in making an extraordinary six-course traditional Turkish meal. The ambiance was incredible, and her and her sister were extremely hospitable. If you visit Istanbul, this class is a must!
Once you Enter Aysin home you will feel the warmth and coziness of it. You wont feel that you are a stranger, you would feel that you are in your own home and with the two lovely sisters, as being your own sisters, We had a great time, cooking was fun and yummy, Aysin made cooking so easy. I love the full experience and would do it again and again,, I recommend all to go for it, I would like to thank the two nice sisters for hosting us,, and because of you both I loved Istanbul more.
Great fun and very educational. Recipes were easy and only use ingredients I can find at home. Small group.
Beginning with an enriching short walking tour through the streets of Istanbul. Entering shops, factories and kitchens, tasting and learning about the Othman cuisine. Then a warm hospitality and a Turkish breakfast at a beautifully decorated modern apartment, where the cooking class takes place. Unlike other classes I participated – in this class you really learn and do everything from scratch and eat your own cooking! The instructors were amazingly friendly and professional and I sure recommend this class as well as certain I’ll come back again for some more recipes and tastes!!!
