Cooking Vacations in Turkey

Blessed with year-round mild temperatures, stunning geological landscapes, gorgeous coastal resorts, amazing gastronomy, and a cultural patrimony that is second to none, Turkey will awe you. Istanbul (for centuries Constantinople and seat of the Roman Empire) is one of the most fascinating cities in the world, with its iconic Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, and Bosphorus. But there is far more to see in Turkey, including the strangely lunar-like landscape of Cappadocia, and the beautiful and chic Mediterranean beach resorts.

A cooking school vacation in Turkey with The International Kitchen means hands-on cooking lessons where you learn to make traditional dishes of Turkish cuisine. Your cooking holiday in Turkey will also include fabulous excursions to local sites of interest with knowledgeable English-speaking guides and culinary tours featuring regional gastronomic specialties. Our pledge is to make Turkey an easy and safe destination for our culinary travelers, where you will be taken care of and embraced by the locals eager to share their rich gastronomy and culture with you.

Enjoy an authentic hands-on cooking class during your culinary vacation in Turkey.
