Hi, I'm Aliye Aydin

I love to share my passion for food and cooking by teaching people the skills and techniques needed to become better cooks. I believe food needs to taste good and make us feel good, and that cooking, sharing, and eating a home-cooked meal with others is one of the best things we can do for our health.

All my cooking classes include:

-->A custom menu designed just for you;

--> All recipes, ingredients, instructions, and a cleaner kitchen than you started with;

--> A fun way to celebrate special occasions with your friends and family;

--> A memorable experience for corporate team-building and professional networking.

Here's How Past Clients Have Become Better Cooks


I have been hiring Aliye for the past year for many classes which are so much fun! A group of 6-7 of us get together at my house for a series of classes where we pay Aliye a set price for her time and the food. We learn about different cooking techniques while sipping wine and enjoy a fantastic meal at the end. This has been a great way to spend time with my friends and get to meet new ones!


I've attended many cooking classes throughout the years, and yours rank right up there with the best (including celebrity classes). I love your passion and accessible style. I appreciate your patience, and how comfortable you make people feel in the kitchen.




I have learned in Aliye's cooking classes how to use spices and herbs in my cooking to enhance flavor. I used to always use the same herbs and spices that I had growing up, and Aliye introduced me to some unique herbs and spices that I never knew what to do with in my own cooking.
