Then, enjoy grilled aubergine and kofta skewers seasoned with authentic spices for your main dish. On the side, you'll have rice pilaf in tomato sauce and a refreshing cucumber and mint salad. Dessert is traditional, sticky-sweet baklava.

This experience was the perfect way to celebrate our friend's birthday. The food was absolutely outstanding and the baklava was the best we'd ever tasted! Thank you for helping create a memorable evening!

Chef Burcu was very warm and welcoming. Her directions and advice were clear and really made the food more delicious than we thought possible in a short amount of time. 10/10, would go again.

Chef Burcu prepared us a wonderful meal and was kind enough to let us watch and ask questions about the preparations. We had a great time and will certainly be back for more in the future.
