Learn to prepare a Turkish Wedding Feast in this cooking class that honours the traditional celebrations of Bodrum, Turkey

Honoured as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Turkey by UNESCO, the main course of Keşkek is a traditional wedding dish that will take you both back in time and to the present day Turkey when celebrations bring an entire village together. Where men and women cook together outdoors on an open fire all through the night to feed their guests the next day. Where crowds look on cheering and musicians drum along, all announcing the thickening of the stew. This is more than just a celebration, it’s a ceremony, and one we are committed to protecting as a beautiful part of Turkish life. 


It’s time to bring this time honoured dish to your kitchen. Let Chef Asli transport you to her hometown. In your private 1:1 virtual cooking experience, your chef will join you live from her kitchen in Bodrum, Turkey where you will learn and experience this age old tradition in your own home. The scents of the spices will fill your home with a wonderful warm feeling and the soft and creamy dish will melt in your mouth when done. It will be accompanied by Talatur, a savory yet refreshing side made of cooked eggplant and peppers - both Turkish staples. Last but not least, your feast won’t be complete without a piece (or two!) of Sarili - a flakey walnut Baklava made of phyllo and glazed with a simple syrup.


Cue the drums, this will be a night to remember!
