Onion Garlic Cook & Eat

  • Spike Island Cafe 133 Cumberland Road Bristol, England, BS1 6UX United Kingdom (map)

Chef Sevinc Ulucanlar is the owner of the gourmet beach restaurant Onion Garlic (Sogan Sarmisak) in Gumusluk near Bodrum, Turkey.

Sevinc is briefly in the UK and is offering hands-on classes where you can learn to produce the tastes of her restaurant. Sevinc has an infectious enthusiasm for good, wholesome and tasty food.

Turkish cuisine is one of the world’s major culinary traditions, representing the original fusion food thanks to the multicultural nature of the Ottoman Empire. It takes advantage of ingredients and techniques from a wide geographical area stretching from the Balkans to the Arabian peninsula. Sevinc uses recipes from her great-grandmother who lived in Istanbul in early 20th century. She only uses extra virgin olive oil or butter and fresh produce from the local market.

You will:

  • master techniques of Turkish cuisine

  • learn about Turkey’s food culture

  • listen to Sevinc’s food-related stories.

After the class, enjoy the fruits of your labour at a relaxed dinner in the Spike Island Café:

  • invite up to three guests to join you and the other participants for dinner and music from a Turkish playlist.
