One of the things I very much enjoy doing is culinary and cultural tours to my homeland, Turkey and sharing the amazing culture, cuisine and history Turkey offers. I have another tour coming up in 2011. The tour will be from July 25th 2011 to Aug. 4th 2011 and covers Istanbul, Gallipoli (Dardanelles), Pergamum, Troy, Ephesus (including the Temple of Artemis, the Church of St. John and the House of Virgin Mary) Antioch (Antakya, my home town!:) and many more amazing sites. I am especially excited as we included Antioch, my home town to the itinerary, where my cooking has been inspired and have many happy memories there. We will also take wonderful Turkish cooking classes (and see the making of the baklava!) and sample the amazing Turkish cuisine.
The tour is limited to 15 participants and we already have 8 folks singed up. If you would like to explore fascinating Turkey through a local’s perpective with the comfort of a small group, please let me know. You can also view my previous Turkey tour photos, by clicking on “My culinary and cultural tour to Turkey, 2009”.
I will be in Istanbul next week and look forward to be in touch with you with fascinating photos and news from Istanbul.
