COOKING IN ANATOLIA

Whether you are an experienced home cook or are just beginner on cooking, our informative cooking class can help take your cooking to the next level. The hands-on cooking classes are taught in Anatolian’s professionally equipped kitchen. All you need to bring is your appetite for knowledge and fun…
A local chef (probably a village woman) will help you learn to cook basic Anatolian cooking techniques, from pastries and everything in between.
It is also possible to bring along a non-participating partner who can have spending the days sightseeing while you learn to cook and then rejoin the party for the evening meals.
