Enjoy Mediterranean-inspired dishes full of flavor and spice, all plant-focused and prepared without gluten.

Dive into Chef Burcu's hands-on cooking class featuring Mediterranean-inspired dishes that are gluten-free, vegetarian and, if desired, can be made completely vegan.

Start by preparing a refreshing arugula salad topped with beetroot and oranges. Next, carve zucchini boats and load them with feta — or tofu for vegan guests — and fresh basil. For the entrée, stuff bell peppers with quinoa, cranberries and almonds before roasting them to perfection. Finally, bake a few apples with walnuts, cinnamon and star anise for a warm, spice-infused dessert.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

My partner and I had an excellent time learning from Chef Burcu! The menu was extraordinarily put together and all of the dishes were extremely tasty. I was particularly fond of the red lentil soup and my partner loved the beef stew with aubergine. We will definitely be making those recipes again with the handy recipes she provided. Chef Burcu made us feel very welcomed into her exceptionally clean and inviting home and even offered us aprons to wear during our cooking lesson. We learned proper chopping techniques and assisted with the food preparation. Chef Burcu served us dinner and offered us Turkish coffee which was delightful. She even surprised us with a cake that said “happy 5th anniversary” which made my partner and I feel extra special on our special day. Overall, cooking with Chef Burcu was a wonderful experience that my partner and I will fondly remember and will recommend to friends and family and any other lovers of food/cooking!
