Turkish food is a unique blend of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, offering an abundance of locally produced fresh foods due to a pleasant climate and rich soil. With a coastline on the Mediterranean Sea, there is no shortage of fresh seafood in the cuisine. In other areas of the country, olives trees provide an abundance olive oil. Join PCC chef, Sureyya Gokeri  for quick cooking techniques and her vast knowledge of these healthy ingredients.
 
Tastings are scheduled at 11 am and 1 pm and include recipe demonstrations as well as sample bites of the featured cuisine. Seating is limited.
