Eat Smart in Turkey
Embark on a Culinary Adventure of a Lifetime with Joan Peterson, Author of Eat Smart in Turkey
No Tour Planned for 2017
Come with us on a culinary odyssey through ancient, Ottoman, and modern Turkey, and get to the heart of the culture through an exploration of its scrumptious cuisine and wine. Sample the infinite variety of regional Turkish specialties in their natural setting. Delve into the secrets of Turkish dishes by participating in a cooking class. Visit bustling markets to learn about the herbs, spices and condiments prevalent in Turkish cookery. You’ll come away with a knowledge of the culinary traditions of Turkey and a deep appreciation of the magnitude of history and culture that this ancient land possesses.
But it’s not all about food and wine. We’ll see the major tourist sights in Istanbul, in the Mediterranean, and in magical Cappadocia, where we can take a sunrise balloon ride and gently soar above its surreal lunar landscape before landing for a champagne toast. And, we’ll still have time to shop and relax along the way.
