Great fun and very educational. Recipes were easy and only use ingredients I can find at home. Small group.

If you are considering doing this class, don't waste any time deciding, just do it. You won't regret it. We had a wonderful day leaning about various aspects of Turkish ingredients and traditional cuisine, whilst making new friends and enjoying beautiful food. Our tutor and hosts were beautifully welcoming and professional and made the day an absolute delight. The venue was very well set up and easy to get to.
We cannot express how amazing this evening was! My daughter and I went together and I am not an avid cook like she is but the way the evening was presented made me feel passionate about cooking even if it was only for one night! Everything from the space to the interesting conversation was wonderful and not to mention the fresh and gorgeous ingredients and the way we were taught to make Turkish cuisine seem effortless, fun and mouth wateringly delicious! We would definitely recomend it and we will be there again!
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.
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!!!
