Warm greetings to you all from Istanbul, Istanbul’dan merhaba! It has been over a week since we did our Turkish cooking class at Istanbul Culinary, I just had a chance to share some wonderful photos from the class. It was a delicious class, with wonderful, hardworking participants, and we knocked up 4 courses in 2 hours; many thanks to all the participants for their hard work 🙂
Each course took below 30 minutes to prepare – with tray kebab to bake for about 45 minutes -; you can prepare healthy, delicious food in a short period of time and it is a lot of fun to share with others. Above we are making the cevizli biber, red pepper paste with walnuts and olive oil.
Everyone worked hard and pleasantly surprised to create dishes in a short period of time; why not you have a go tonight to make the Patlicanli eksileme – smoked eggplant salad with garlic yoghurt? It may be a delicious treat for you too:)
Istanbul Culinary Institute also have a lovely cafe with freshly prepared Turkish and international dishes by the Institute’s students, very well worth visiting. Also, do keep an eye out for Joy’s wonderful pastry classes at the Institute!
I would like to say farewell with Kandili Iskele’s – ferry stop- shot; Kandilli is a very quaint village on the Asian side of Istanbul, famous wiith its yoghurt; make sure to stop by there : )
Look forward to saying hello again soon, until then, warm wishes to you all from Istanbul!
