If you are picking your travel destination with the primary purpose of enjoying local food and beverages, you are with us, foodie! Memorable experience, eating at gourmet restaurant, going to a famous bar or simply enjoying streetfood from a stall. We cover it all. Our full day tours led by immersive expert guides are not only a celebration of local cuisine. They are an homage to the unsung heros of the kitchens. The tour is a way of exploring city’s history, neighborhood life, traditions, culture all through the food. Taste authentic food, Get off the beaten path, meet the masters and experience the city.

Behind every great Turkish cook is a neighborhood community a baker, a third generation milkman, a greengrocer with fresh seasonal produce, a butcher who’s owned the same shop for decades. Nowhere in İstanbul is this local culture more alive than in Kurtuluş, where our cooking experience takes place. This neighborhood, once home to religious minority groups during the Ottoman Empire, has maintained its unique, community-oriented soul even as fast-food chains and megamalls have started to dominate areas nearby. Before we start to cook, we’ll explore the shops of Kurtuluş as we gather our ingredients. Back at the kitchen, we’ll teach you how to cook six of our favorite Turkish recipes from all over Turkey dishes like Circassian chicken, stuffed eggplant from Southeastern Turkey, Aegean style mincemeat pastries and more. Once lunch is ready, we’ll open a bottle of rakı, the traditional liquor of Turkey, and celebrate the food that we’ve prepared. For a sweet finale, we’ll enjoy a pumpkin dessert laced with tahini and walnuts and some revitalizing Turkish coffee.
