We signed up for a cooking class based on a recommendation from one of our friends and we're so glad we did it! We cooked menu #2 and it was delicious (the hot yogurt soup and Anatolian flatbread filled with spinach were my favorite!). Leyla and Rocco make a great pair in the kitchen—the kitchen was pristine, Leyla and Rocco took the time to explain each step and gave tips, and were easy going and very friendly! I highly recommend this as something that everyone should do in Istanbul. I can't wait to cook the recipes at home!
This restaurant was an oasis from the hassle of old town, the food was delicious and of high quality. They serve local Turkish food with an innovative touch. The service was amazing and they were excellent host. Highly recommend!
