We recently had an unexpected 2-day layover in Istanbul and were looking for things to do. We came across Cookistan on Trip Advisor and luckily they had an opening for an evening class. We had our 8-year old son with us who loves to cook....More
Joining Cookistan’s classes was honestly an accident, but what a wonderful accident it was. The class started out with a tour by Aysin around the neighborhood and we visited some shops that sold key ingredients to Turkish cuisine, so that was nice.

Aysin led a truly incredible evening - beginning with a walking tour of their neighbourhood (which is far off the tourist circut) stopping in little shops along the way, followed by hours around Aysin's table, learning about Turkish cuisine and culture.

If you have any interest in Turkish cuisine then spending time with Aysin and her team will be a real highlight of your trip to Istanbul. A really memorable evening - so much interesting knowledge shared on the tour of the neighbourhood before we started...More
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining
restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
