I was the most fortunate person in Istanbul two days ago!
I was looking out for the address I had been directed to, when the tea boys in the building called to me the word I needed to hear... Melis ?... and pointed upwards.
Thank you, Melis, for an engaging cooking demonstration. I learned all about the spices and key ingredients that make familiar products take "Turkish". She also taught me about Turkish wines and poured me a shot of raki!
Melis runs the show at this cute, centrally-located kitchen, where we learned how to source and prepare delicious Turkish food. Fresh ingredients from the local market get turned into a mouthwatering meal which (obviously) you get to eat at the end - which is the...More

Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening
nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
