Private Traditional Turkish Cooking Class and Meal with a Local in Istanbul

Private Traditional Turkish Cooking Class and Meal with a Local in Istanbul

Enjoy a private and authentic cooking class and homecooked meal with your host Berhan. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. The cuisine you will learn to cook is from the Aegean coast and the Black Sea. This is because Berhan’s father is from the Black Sea area, while her mother is from the Aegean Coast, so Berhan grew up learning to cook local Turkish dishes from both these regions, as well as Anatolian cuisine. Berhan learned to cook from her mother and her grandmother and has been cooking since she was 10 years old. She uses only fresh and organic ingredients, like the olive oil she uses that comes from her olive garden on the Aegean Coast. Turkish cuisine is about vegetables, fish, meat, rice and Turkish meze (like tapas) all cooked in pure olive oil or butter, and Berhan delights in meeting new people and sharing Turkish dishes like these with travelers from around the world.

Turkish cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Eastern European, Armenian and Balkan cuisines. Turkish cuisine has in turn influenced those and other neighboring cuisines, including those of Southeast Europe (Balkans), Central Europe, and Western Europe. The Ottomans fused various culinary traditions of their realm with influences from Levantine cuisines, along with traditional Turkic elements from Central Asia (such as yogurt and pastırma), creating a vast array of specialties. We will show you the traditional style Turkish & Ottoman Cuisine with Eggplants – Vegetables – Rice – Turkish mezes – Boreks and a wide variety of Turkish Sweets.

Turkish Marbling Lesson

Turkish Marbling Lesson

Marbling is the art of creating colorful patterns sprinkling and brushing color pigments on a pan of oily water and then transforming this pattern to paper. The special tools of the trade are brushes of horsehair bound to straight rose twigs, a deep tray made of unknotted pinewood, natural earth pigments, cattle gall and tragacanth. It is believed to be invented in the thirteenth century Turkistan. This decorative art then spread to China, India and Persia and Anatolia. Seljuk and Ottoman calligraphers and artists used marbling to decorate books, imperial decrees, official correspondence and documents.
