Cookery course at a local home

Cookery course at a local home, Turkey

Spending time in a local family's home, learning how to cook traditional meals is an excellent way to experience rural life in Cappadocia.

Although the landscape in Cappadocia looks fairly barren, the volcanic soil is richly fertile and yields excellent vegetables and fruit, including grapes for Cappadocia's thriving wine industry. Local ingredients are therefore used in all cooking, and villagers have passed the art of producing excellent home-cooked food down through the generations.
