We are going to meet at Büyükada port station, where you can arrive by boat from different spots of Istanbul (such as Eminönü, Beşiktaş, Kadıköy, Bostancı). We can, first, have a walk in the town and visit the local market place to buy what we need. Then, we can take a 5 mins buggy ride (horse car) to my place. I welcome you with small bites and sparkling wine or tea/cofffe. We have a look at the menu which I prepare and adjust according to seasonal vegetables and products. Then we start cooking: An example of the winter: 1. Haydari: Seasoned Youghurt Meze 2. Mütebbel: Eggplant Meze with Tahini sauce 3. Adjika: Grilled Paprika Paste with Waltnuts 4. Leek in Olive Oil with Lemon 5. Chicken Tartar or Istanbul Style Meatballs 6. Spinach and Cheese Pie (Börek) 7. Shrimp Casserole (Jumbo) 8. Stuffed Pepper or Wine Leaves Then, we design our feasting table which sees all Istanbul. Play our favourite songs, eat and feast together! We will of course share our knowledge and experiences with each other through joyful conversations. Cheers! PS: You can find city lines (public) and private lines from the old town (Eminönü)- more often, Beşiktaş and Kabataş. The latest boat goes back to Bostancı (Asian Side) around 11:30 pm and Eminönü 10:15 pm
I have been cooking for my friends and family for years. Last year, I decided to turn this skill of me into a fun workshop activity where I can share my discrete family recipes with people visiting Istanbul. My menu covers range of cold and warm mezes from Middle East, Aegean, Balkans and Black Sea regions. By so far, it seems like it has worked out. I have a studio home with a panoramic view of Istanbul, based on Büyükada. Here, I invite people over (mostly the visitors), we cook together, feast and have fun! PS: When I am absent, my sister AYSE USTA will be doing it with you.

Buggy Ride 4 Pax (15 TL- Extra)
Büyükada, being the most populated of 5 Prince's Islands hosts the visitors from all over the world. My roof-top flat is 10 mins away from the port by walking, and there is a possibility of taking buggy ride for an affordable price. On Büyükada, other than my cooking workshop, you can have a walking or biking tour into the forest where all the ways lead to the Orphanage and the St. George Church at the peak of the hill.
