Real Food Adventure - Turkey

Explore Turkey, visiting the mouth-watering cities of Istanbul, Ayvalik, Goreme, Gaziantep and Selcuk, and get an insight into the country’s history, culture and food traditions.

Take a culinary journey through Turkey, a country steeped in history and tradition, where east meets west and the ancient bleeds into the modern day. Begin in astonishing Istanbul, eating meze in a traditional meyhane, being awed by the Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque and exploring the well-trod passageways of the Grand Bazaar. Soak in the history and beauty of Bursa while discovering the out-of-this-world Iskender kebabs and drink in the tranquillity and traditions of the seaside village of Ayvalik, where fresh seafood and olive oil are the order of the day. Visit the impressive ruins of Ephesus near Selcuk and marvel at the astonishing underground cities of Cappadocia. Spend time with a local Goreme family and learn the secrets behind central Anatolian cuisine in a cooking class. Famous for its emerald-green pistachios, Gaziantep is the perfect place to see Turkey’s renowned south-eastern food traditions come alive. Arrive back in Istanbul, where this adventure into Turkey’s sights, sounds and incredible cuisine comes to an end.
