What you'll do

You’ll be welcomed into my kitchen and my terrace with view to create a proper locksmith table (rakı table). We will prepare four kinds of appetizers (mezes): Haydari, humus, şakşuka and biber dolması. Afterwards, we will drink raki by talking about the tavern culture and history while eating the food we prepare (and surprise treats).

Sedef

Hello I am an Istanbulliot -- born and grow in İstanbul:) I am very fascinated by this city and its history, so I even studied history. During my studies, I worked as a guide in museums and cultural activities. I also wrote articles on various sites and magazines as a food blogger. After history I can say that my second passion is prepare and discover new dishes! I come from a family very fond of food culture. My mother used to run a restaurant, although her real job was financial advisor. It brought me a passion for cooking at an early age. Then I improved myself with the workshops I attended. I want to teach you how to prepare a proper raki table (that we called locksmith table), which is our cultural tradition, and share the recipes I have inherited from my family with you on my terrace with a magnificent view of the Bosphorus.
