Food Geek's Turkish Cuisine Gathering

Cooking experience hosted by Aslıhan

3.5 hours
Turkish
Up to 4 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Our event is designed for a small group of 4 people, I will be welcoming you with Turkish tea, there will be a variety of them which I will be explaining and you may choose from. During this tea session, we will have chance to get to know each other and talk about food, of course! Since Turkey has a climate of full 4 seasons, seasonal meal planing is crucial to get the best taste out of every bite. Eggplants/Aubergine in winter is never a good idea! All the ingredients will be ready in the kitchen, I will be explaining you the dish and story behind it and all the tips i have! Then we will proceed to cooking following stages. I will be showing and explaining you dishes in detail and since it is a small group you are free to ask further. My menus are consisting of two different kinds of salads/mezes, main dish with a side and a desert following that. I usually go crazy and make some additional stuff but this is the minimum you could expect. Here on airbnb I offer traditional Turkish recipes in my family's style of cooking which is Aegean and Mediterranean. After cooking, we will savour the food together and most probably talk more, about food!

I'm a well traveled food geek and a home cook of 20+ years. I've started my kitchen adventures around the same time I learned reading, two of my favourite activities! I'm not one of those underfed cooks, I eat what I preach =D While traveling and 'expating' around the word, I've always made a point of finding friends to cook for and feed; adopted local recipes, ingredients and ways of cooking which led me to develop a collection of fusion recipes. Hosting friends from abroad, cooking for them, sharing my foodie places to shop and eat gives me tremendous joy. So I started Eatrip, a company which helps you eat your way through Istanbul in so many different ways all year round!
