Guys, I love ottoman cuisine and want to learn how to cook some of the special dishes such as manti, imam bayildi, soups, desserts etc I do not want to get a professional course for it. They ask lots of money and I am not really eager to pay a cent to them. What I am looking for is a Turkish lady who will show me how to cook 2-3 of above mentioned dishes along with a friendly chat. I live in Arnavutkoy, and my weekends can be set up only for this. Thank you in advance.
First of all let me express my gratitude to Angloinfo Istanbul for creating such a comprehensive and informative website. You are of great help to expats living in Istanbul ! I have a question and your answers are all welcome forumers :) I'm giving my Norwegian friends a dinner party this weekend. I want to cook Turkish food by myself. What are the essentials for such a menu, what would you cook if you were me? Thnx, Disa
