Preparation steps:

  • Before your date, make sure to book your cooking class in advance to secure your slot. Since Istanbul is quite busy in November, early booking is recommended. Also, ensure that they specialize in chicken dishes, given that's what your partner loves.
  • Arrive early on the date day. This doesn't only show your commitment but also gives you a chance to explore the venue or have a quick tour around. A cooking class often provides all the ingredients and tools you'll need, so you don't have to bring anything unless specified by the class.
  • As this is a cooking activity, it's a good idea to wear something comfortable and not too heavy. It's also recommended to wear closed-toe shoes for safety reasons.
