About this tour

Turkish bread is generally more like the pocket-less type of pita. A wheat dough more leavened than pita bread provides the broad, round flat shape of this type of bread.

Turkish pastry comes in numerous shapes, sizes, and flavours; cevizli baklava (walnut baklava) and fistikli baklava (pistachio baklava) are what you see most often in the States: flaky layers of phyllo dough, stacked and brushed with butter and sugar syrup, and then cut into rectangles or diamonds. Learn to make freshly baked bread by pastry chef Aysegul.

What a wonderful experience. With my siblings spread out across the US, this was a great way to spend an afternoon together. Fabulous hostess — knowledgeable, flexible and kept things interactive. Also loved hearing a little about Turkish culture and food.
