Authentic Turkish home cooking with Ozlem

Please join Ozlem, author of Ozlem’s Turkish Table cookery book, as she will take you on a culinary journey to Turkey and show you how to make these delicious, authentic dishes from her homeland, Turkey. Turkish cuisine is a feast to all senses, healthy, packed with flavour and once you give a go, easy to make. You will be making these wonderful popular dishes, made in Turkish homes with Ozlem:

1) Turkish lentil soup with potato and carrots - Mercimek Corbasi; Meals traditionally start with soup in Turkish cuisine; this plant based soup is a meal in itself, with refreshing lemon and packed with flavour.

2) Stuffed aubergines with minced meat and vegetables - Karniyarik; Aubergine is our national vegetable (actually fruit!) and this dish is one of the most popular ways to enjoy aubergine in Turkey. We will serve them with refreshing Cacik dip of Cucumber and yoghurt with dried mint.

3) Flatbreads with zaatar, cheese and pepper paste – Biberli Ekmek: A delicious and fragrant flatbread from Ozlem’s southern Turkish roots – you will be amazed how easy and delicious it is!

4Shepherd's salad with sumac and red onions – Sumakli coban salatasi: This vibrant salad is the Mediterranean on a plate, with the tangy sumac.

5) Baklava with walnuts: Baklava is perfected at the Ottoman Palace kitchens; you will learn how to make the real, authentic baklava with Ozlem. Not overly sweet, flaky, fragrant and delicious – just how it is made in Turkey. 

During the class, Ozlem will also offer ideas for substitutions, tips for ahead of time cooking and freezing, along with stories from her homeland. Turkish cuisine is healthy, delicious and once you give it a go, so easy to make – please join Ozlem to recreate her Turkish feast!
