Where you'll be

This organisation would be in our home. I live with my close friend. She is from hatay and I am from Adana. Hatay and adana are 2 cities in the south part of turkey. These cities are popular with their deliciousness foods. Maybe you hear Adana kebab. Adana is hometown of kebab in turkey.
We have really large living room, a terrace that sees Bosporus. We will cook in our kitchen, eat in our living room and have a turkish tea in our terrace.

Zekiye is a young woman with exceptional communication skills. She is friendly, easygoing and caring. We feel comfortable and happy cooking, having lunch and just shooting the breeze with her. There is no rush. She takes the time to explain about the food, repeatedly, since we kept on forgetting or incorrectly naming the food we were cooking or the names of the ingredients required :) It was really fun and relaxing. Thank you Zekiye.

I had a wonderful time chatting and cooking with Zekiye! We began with coffee on the balcony (really lovely view of the Bosphorus). Then began preparing all the dishes together while Zekiye shared the background and uses of different ingredients and techniques. In addition to learning how to cook all these new dishes, I really appreciated her warmth and hospitality - it made for a very relaxing few hours of chatting, especially when I've been running all over Istanbul the last few days. Overall, I can't recommend Zekiye's cooking class enough. It was well worth the ferry ride over from Beyoglu!

This was an excellent experience learning about Turkish food in the local environment. My group also enjoyed taking the ferry to Üsküdar and walking around the town en route to her apartment. Overall it was a great experience and a good value.

Zekiya is a lovely girl who loves food and learned to cook from her mother and grandmother. The food we cooked was home cooking and delicious. Zekiya showed us how easily it was to make tasty dolmas and Miti which we liked so much we got a dish at a restaurant. Zekiya’s version was better! When I asked if we would make Borek, zekiya surprised us by having the ingredients so that we also made Borek! We had a lovely afternoon getting to know Zakiya and learning about her and a bit of Istanbul. This was an experience in a home, making home cooked meals, so was special. It was not gourmet food but was delicious.

Zekiye was a fantastic host! She taught our group each step in making all dishes and did an excellent job explaining where she got the ingredients and how to prep them. The food was delicious and she even let us take the leftovers. It was lovely.
