In our half day cooking classes, you will be taught from scratch how to make different recipes from Turkish and Ottoman Cuisine. Usually we cook a balanced 5 dish meal, including a soup, 2 vegetarian starters, one meat based main course and a dessert.
We adapt our menus for vegan/vegetarians and those who has allergies or food restrictions.
Classes are very hands on and we are very centrally located in the heart of Sultanahmet close to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
We generally pick the menu a few days prior to the class, depending on the size of the group and special requests. Our meze menu we only do in AM classes because it doesn't have a main dish. If you have certain preferences, let me know and I'll do my best to accommodate.
Menu 3 – Meze only
Meeting point is at the school. A pick-up service can be organised from/to Sultanahmet/Beyoğlu area at 50€ 2-6 people.

We had a very nice evening learning to cook some Turkish dishes at Alaturka. The chefs were very friendly and helped us cook 5 different dishes. Afterwards we all sat down and enjoyed our 5 course meal. A bit expensive, but a fun night for sure
We were a small group, and were allowed to do nearly everything when cooking our lunch. Everything was done at quite high speed and some things had been prepared beforehand by the cook. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to try their hand at Turkish cuisine!
Turned out to be a 1 on 1 course due to the lack of tourists because of security environment. The hot yogurt soup is a must (would've never made it if I was looking at recipe book) - delicious. Great time and very hands on - just round the corner from the blue mosque.
Very professional, hands on and fun. a must if you have a day spare. a few wines later and could not believe we made our own Turkish food. Tried the recipes at home and was just as great.
