What you'll do

My experience is a cooking class. In this class we will make "manti": Turkish ravioli from scratch and then cook and eat it all together. We will also have some cold and warm starters that I will have previously prepared. I like to cook classic Turkish home dishes where you can only eat at some local's house. My dishes are never the ones you can eat in a random restaurant. My guests arrive around 16.30 and leave around 23.00.

I am a full time cook of modern Turkish Cuisine and what I love the most is sitting around a table with my guests while we are all dining together what I've cooked, telling them everything I know about my cuisine and answering their questions. I've been practicing home restaurant concept for the last 5 years and it is definitely the richest culinary experience ever!

Where you'll be

That experience will be held in my living room, around my table :) I live with my two sweet cats.
Where I live is a quite but very old neighbourhood of Istanbul yet very central and easy to access. You will observe the daily life of actual locals. Next to my house there is a 400+ years old mosque and hamam complex (Çinili Mosque&Hamam) that I love to share it's story with my guests.

I took a few cooking classes in Istanbul and this was hands down the best cooking experience I have had. Cooking Manti from scratch is a daunting task, but Asude's culinary expertise made it quite simple. The class was completely hands-on and we prepared a wonderful dinner together (Manti and few Mezes). I also had lot of fun cooking and dining with Asude and her boyfriend. They are very amiable , easy-going and welcoming people.
