Our Turkish cooking class began with a very warm greeting, a morning pick up and drive to the market. Entering Asli’s restaurant we were awed by its colorful ambiance, dining tables in the courtyard and inside, and her husband’s paintings decorating the wall. With Turkish tea and great conversation we sat down at one of the tables to pod cranberry beans, peel red peppers, cut up quince, crush garlic, chop onions, grate tomatoes, and roll vegetables in phyllo sheets. The smoky fragrance of the grilling eggplants, the quince and fennel simmering, and the rice pilaf with raisins and herbs made the experience deliciously sensual. The main dish was a work of art - fresh anchovies lining a clay pot, which was filled with rice pilaf and re-covered with the anchovies. We learned Asli’s special techniques for how to make her “magic sauce”, and the wonderful combination of herbs with fruits and vegetables. What a beautiful
The actual tour was amazing. Absolutely loved all the sites we went to! But the only negative is that they take you to "shops" for 30 - 40 minutes each along the way, and these places present you with what they are selling, so they try to hustle their products to you. By the end the group was over going to these "shops". But apart from that highly recommend the tour.
A great day running around in the jeeps. Food was good. Just one comment is that the stops in the villages took longer than expected so the trip could have easily been done in 5 hours but was good overall and a great fun water fight as well.
