At the market you will encounter local food purveyors who offer all manner of self-harvested olives, wild seasonal greens, vegetables, as well as home-made noodles, jams, pickles, breads and a delicious array of cheeses.
From the market we will drive to our place to cook, here we will guide you through the delicious secrets of regional Aegean cookery with its accent on olive oil and fresh herbs, a very special and particularly healthy branch of Turkish cuisine. You will be invited to watch the cooking sessions while sipping a glass of wine, or join-in for a hands-on experience if you’d rather. Either way, we guarantee you we will be entertained and with the help of the written recipes we will offer you, be able to recreate the feast back at home.
We will serve you a lunch of all the wonderful dishes we have cooked together, at tables where we will share stories of Turkish Cuisine and cooking traditions in our families while tasting our local wines. We usually get many nice people here and most of them say that this was the high light of their trip. If you like to learn about a country and its people the best place is a table where you share local food.
At 2:30 p.m. we will drive you back to your chosen location in Bodrum, giving you ample time to visit the charming town.
