  • Stepping into a professional kitchen, the aroma of spices and baking bread overwhelm you. The chef, a culinary expert, guides you and your partner through the process of creating some local Turkish delicacies.
  • After the cooking event, both of you are led into a warm, dim-lit room with wooden shelves lined with an array of wines. A sommelier introduces you to the nuances of wine tasting, helping you pair the food you've cooked with the right wine.
  • Closing the evening, you and your partner savor the meal you've crafted, along with the perfect wine, sharing stories, laughter, and creating wonderful memories.

Preparation steps:

  • Make reservations in advance for both the cooking class and wine tasting session. Ensure your partner is comfortable with the plan.
  • Dress comfortably as you'd be standing and working in the kitchen. However, remember it's a date so a bit of dress-up wouldn't harm.
  • Have a light meal before the class, you don't want to be cooking on an empty stomach but save enough room for the meal you'll be preparing and tasting afterwards.
