Break the winter blues and join us for a fun Turkish Cooking Class!

I am delighted to share with you that I will be restarting my Turkish cooking classes soon. I am very passionate about my homeland’s cuisine and taught Turkish cooking classes in the US over 5 years (privately and thru Central Market Cooking Schools in Austin, San Antonio and Houston); they have all been received very well so far. Turkish cuisine is healthy, delicious, and easy to prepare.  I have two classes scheduled in Surrey, England; on Saturday, 25th February, from 10 am to 12 noon, and on Sunday, 11th March, from 2.30pm-4.30pm at Oatlands Village Hall. It would be a great pleasure to have your company 🙂

We have a wonderful menu lined up; Warm homemade hummus with olive oil&red pepper flakes, served with pita breadBulgur wheat salad with vegetables, olive oil and pomegranate molasses, served over lettuce leaf;   Stuffed aubergine with ground meat, onion and tomato sauce (I can also do a vegetarian version of this if requested ahead of time); diced cucumber and yoghurt dip with dried mint

We will end the class with home made  Baklava! (much lighter and delicious than the commercial ones; you also won’t believe how easy it is to make them!)

The details of the Turkish cooking classes are available at my blog, under Cooking Classes.If you can’t join us, all these recipes are available at my blog,  just a click away! Hope you give them a go sometime.

Happy Cooking!

    Do I wish I could be there – I’d love to learn how to prepare Baklava! Maybe one day we can do a class together! Wishing you much success!

      How I wished to have you here and cook together Barbara, many thanks for your kind wishes:) The baklava in the blog is a very friendly recipe that you can make at home. Do look forward to make it together though:)

      I would love to link my classes with yours, could you give me the link?
      With love,

    So glad to see you are starting your amazing and fun cooking classes in the UK. I loved your classes while we were in Austin together. I remember how your Central Market classes were always sold out. You are so patient and the menus are interesting and well put together! Wish we were still close by…Good luck, I can’t imagine a better teacher than you for Turkish Food.
