12th June; Hands On Turkish Cookery Class at Abinger Cookery School!

I am delighted to partner up with the wonderful Abinger Cookery School in Surrey Hills – England, to teach a feast of Turkish recipes on Friday, 12th June 2015. This will be a hands on style Turkish cookery course, as some readers requested, from 9.30 am to 4 pm on 12th June. We shall prepare the delicious Turkish dishes together all throughout the day and enjoy eating them (as well as taking some back home) at the Abinger Cookery School’s beautiful grounds. It will be a day of feasting and learning all about wonderful, delicious Turkish cuisine; from Turkish flat breads with feta, spinach, onion and peppers to Courgette fritters with feta and dill, served with garlic yoghurt, from Stuffed aubergines with minced meat and vegetables to Baklava, Turkish coffee  and many more. The class will  also be packed with information on Turkish culinary heritage, Turkish ingredients and where to source them, artful use of spices, ideas for substitution and more.  Below is the details of our course – hope you can join us to discover and learn exciting Turkish flavors.
