Explore Turkey's abundant culinary history while hand-making its classically rich cuisine.

In this hands-on cooking class, Chef Maggie will guide you on a historic tour of the Ottoman Empire through the creation of five dishes unique to the Cappadocia region. You'll learn smart cooking techniques as you prepare each recipe.

Start with an appetizer of grape leaves filled with rice and spices, known as yaprak sarmasi. Next, discover the essence of an authentic Turkish meat pie made with sweet chili paste and ground beef, and form your own manti dumplings with a side of grilled vegetables. Finish with the densely sweet dessert of Turkish delights.

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