  • The day kicks off with the two of you arriving at the cooking class, ready to challenge your culinary skills. You're guided by a local chef who shares the secrets of Turkish cuisine. Throughout your date, you'll prepare a complete meal - from appetizer to dessert - each dish representative of the rich and diverse Turkish culinary tradition. After the cooking session, you'll get to sample your delicious creations, marking a satisfying ending to an action-packed date.
  • While cooking, you realize how much fun it is to cook together and navigate through the process of preparing a meal from start to finish. It's a bonding experience that you'll remember. However, the best part is enjoying a self-made Turkish dinner at the end. It's a haven of taste and texture with every bite, thanks to the fresh local ingredients.
  • By the end of this date, you would've learned some delectable Turkish recipes that you can recreate anytime at home. It's not just about the food; it's about the journey of making it together. It’s a date that you’ll remember for years to come.

Preparation steps:

  • Before your date, make sure to clear your schedule, because this is a full day affair. Be sure to book your class in advance as they can fill up incredibly quickly. Don't forget to ask for information about what you'll be cooking, so you can anticipate what to expect.
  • On the day of your date, dress comfortably in clothing that you don’t mind potentially spilling food on and leave anything unnecessary at home. It's all about having a fun and comfortable day experiencing Turkish food.
  • Last but not least, come with an empty stomach. You're going to be cooking and eating a lot of food, and you want to make sure you have room to try everything.
