This experience deserves 10 stars! We had the best time learning about, preparing and eating authentic Turkish dishes you won’t find in restaurants around Istanbul. There was more than just food - we did some traditional Turkish dancing, (friendly) competitions, took photos and made new friends. If you’re looking for an authentic cooking experience in the heart of Beyoglu, you should absolutely check this out.

We had a lot of fun cooking and chatting with the guys. The experience is very sincere and personal. It is not just about cooking, it feels like a friends gathering. I also learned a Turkish wedding dance :D If you are looking for a social experience where you can connect with people, this is the one. The guys are nice and fun, the food is delicious, the experience is satisfying.

This experience was amazing. We really enjoyed every bit of it. Not only were the hosts engaging and the food excellent, we tried many little treats that are hard to find on the streets or we are not familiar with. We danced and had a great time! If you are in town, don’t miss this experience!

Тот случай, когда время провели с гораздо большим удовольствием, чем ожидали. Команда организаторов - большие молодцы. Это не просто 3 часа мастер класса по приготовлению национальных блюд, а шикарное развлечение с экскурсом в культурные особенности. Аутентично, колоритно, весело, вкусно.

This is a great experience. Can recommend it to those, who are keen on cooking and those, who want some entertainment. Except for cooking, Furcan taught us traditional dancing and told us about Turkish traditions.
