I came across Les Arts Turc while researching for our visit to Turkey in June 2013. They offer many workshops - calligraphy, Turkish language lessons, painting on tiles etc. but what excited me most was their lesson on Turkish cuisine. An extended family of 13 members - ages ranging from 80 to 11 years - decided to go on a gastronomy excursion. We were taken to a beautifully appointed professional kitchen. There were about 8 fully kitted out workstations ready with all ingredients that would be required. We were handed out our aprons and got down to some seriously fun filled cooking session. We were taught how to make a starter, pilaf, non veg main course, a veg main course and a dessert. The instructions were clear and concise and the chief chef and his assistants handled the group very well. After the session we all sat down to the hearty meal cooked by us. The dining area, on the ground floor, was airy and bright. This workshop was really the highlight of our trip and I recommend it as a must do when in Istanbul. As promised the recipes were emailed to us promptly.
