I wanted to try something new while in vacation and ended up into taking a cooking class with Leyla and Rocco: it turned out to be the highlight of my Turkish Vacation! Rocco and his team are very knowledgeable. We prepared together five different and tasty meals of the Turkish cousin. They made us part of all the preparation process with enthusiasm and passion. I had such a lovely time I didn’t even realise it was already time to taste the product of our efforts. The meals were delicious, all thanks to the competent instructions of Rocco and his team. I would highly recommend to take a cooking class with them. You will learn having fun in a very pleasant environment. My boyfriend was a complete fool and decided not to join me but he regretted it as soon as he saw my smile and pictures. Rocco and Leyla were so nice and generous that even let me bring him some food home so that he could taste it and regret again not having come. Thank you so much for the lovely time guys!
I have attended the cooking class at cooking Alaturca. Rocco, Leyla and the Chef know how to bring up knowledge, taste and passion in the kitchen. This is a great way to learn about secrets of the Turkish cuisine and get tips that nowhere else you will find. We had a great experience and ate the meal prepared by the help of the Chef. Worth the money!! I would definitely go back for more.
