Cooking Class

We took an excellent cooking class on old Ottoman cuisine with Sharon from the Istanbul Food Workshop. It began with product shopping at the Spice Market: grape leaves, almonds, cheese, spices and borek dough. From there we contionued to her kitchen in the old Greek/Jewish quarter. It was lots of fun and extremely tasty! Here's a taste of the menu...

Limonlu Yalancı Yaprak Dolması - Rice stuffed vine leaves with lemon
Zeytınyağlı Havuç - Carrots in olive oil
Yufka Boreğı - Cheese and dill layered pastry
Kımyonlu Köfte - Kofte with cumin
Sütlü Bademlı ımık Helvası - Semolina helva with milk and almonds
