Hello fellow foodies,

Ottoman Cuisine photo

Spice up your trip with a hands-on Turkish cooking class! It's time to roll up your sleeves and tie on a Cooking Alaturka apron... Prepare five delicious authentic recipes and then enjoy them for lunch or dinner in our restaurant with a glass or two of local wine. In just one morning or afternoon our classes provide a fulfilling cultural experience, as well as lots of fun!

We opened in 2002 as Istanbul's first Turkish cooking school and thanks to lots of favorable press we have been cooking up a storm since then. Our location is ideal, amidst the city's major sights. Whether you stay close to us or not, you're bound to come our way.

We'll teach you a balanced five-course menu in a group of 2 to 10 persons. And of course I'll be happy to give you advice on what to see, do, and eat in Istanbul.
