My traveling companion and I were excited about our trip to Istanbul...and especially Turkish food. She loves to cook, so I booked the Turkish Flavours culinary tour and cooking class on-line prior to leaving on the trip as a gift to her. Good call. Selin is an interesting person, is willing to answer any question on Turkey and its people, culture, and food, of course. I'm not such a good cook, so I mainly booked the cooking class for the benefit of my traveling companion, but I had a great time, and learned a lot of cooking tricks that I've used since I've returned. The whole experience made me want to cook more. We cooked a variety of dishes...dishes we could make when we returned, and it was an awesome meal...something to be proud of. Selin gave us a little cook book that included dishes we prepared, as well as others. The tour was great. She introduced us to people who ran market stalls and shops, and we visted food shops we ordinarily probably wouldn't have stumbled into. I got lots of wonderful photos. She wants to learn about your particiular interest and is flexible on the tour. The restaurant she took us to for lunch was exceptional. Selin is someone who is real, curious about people, intelligent, and wants her clients to have a good time and learn. I've recommended this to my friends who are interested in traveling to Istanbul in the future.
