Learn to make flavorful Mediterranean-style Turkish recipes in this hands-on cooking class.

Join Chef Burcu for an interactive cooking class centered around professional cooking techniques and traditional Turkish cuisine.

Begin by making a silky-smooth red lentil soup to enjoy as your starter, then move to preparing a rich beef stew with aubergine purée as your entrée. Chef Burcu will follow by teaching you a few knife skills you can use to chop up a tomato salad before topping it in a scintillating pomegranate sauce. To wrap up your Mediterranean meal, make crispy tahini and walnut rolls with sweet, buttery phyllo pastry.

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

Chef Burcu was wonderful. We took her Turkish Cuisine class with friends and we had a lovely time. The food was so delicious and we got to take some baklava with us home! We will be back to take other classes with her soon. We highly recommend her.

I came to the class with almost no prior experience in cooking but chef Burcu was amazing at navigating me through the process, and with some great results!

Chef Burcu presented a wonderful evening. She had the ingredients prepped before we got there, and demonstrated the main courses for us: soup, beef stew and eggplant in a creamy sauce. We were hands-on for the salad prep, and the tahini walnut dessert. The salad and dessert were simple and delicious. The pomegranate dressing was amazing - I'll definitely add those to our regular repertoire! It was very interesting to see the eggplant prep, and we were hands-on for some of this part. I'm keen to try it out at home - it was really delicious, and seeing it up close it I'm confident we'll be able to repeat the process. Chef Burcu was well organized and professional. The atmosphere was relaxed and pleasant, and the meal was fantastic!
