Cooking Alaturka: Istanbul Cooking Class

Last Updated on April 24, 2023

Leyla and Rocco of Istanbul, who offer half-day Turkish cooking classes, also serves lunch and dinner by reservation every day except Sunday in their restaurant on Akbiyik Caddesi in Sultanahmet‘s hotel district (map).

“We specialize in Ottoman and Turkish cuisine, home style” they say. “The menu is table d’hôte, a four-course set menu with a set price, cooked and served personally by our chef.”

The price is eminently reasonable, especially compared to nearby restaurants, and you receive greater value for your money.

Alaturka has the atmosphere of a private dining roomwith your own chef.

It’s best to make your reservation a day in advance if you can, but if you can’t—say, you’ve just arrived and are jet-lagged and you just want a good, relaxing introduction to Turkish cuisine—contact Cooking Alaturka and see if there are places available. There often are.

When you contact  Leyla and Rocco be sure to mention TTP. Here’s why.
