TurkeyCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

In the cradle of civilization, Turkish cuisine offers centuries of cooking experience, blending of spices and flavors into every dish from salads to breads to meat dishes.  Bridging a variety of cultures and countries, Turkey offers a truly diverse opportunity to experience the fusion of western and eastern influences. Bulgur, minced meat, and salads are the backbone of Turkish home-style cooking, as well as spicy Turkish sausages, crusty loaf breads, and full-flavored vegetable dishes. Turkish cooking is truly an adventure, from kuzu çevirme which is milk fed lamb on a spit to mahmudiye which is chicken with apricots, honey and currants. Experience cooking flavorful dishes with sardines and anchovies, traditional kebabs, and keşkek, a specialty of central Anatolia. From the Black Sea in northern Turkey to the shores of the Mediterranean, a Turkish culinary tour is a unique opportunity to taste, smell and savor the rich flavors not found anywhere else.
