From the market, we will drive the short distance to Ortakent and the Yarbasan Stone-Houses, a collection of hilltop, fully modern homes with panoramic views. They are built of stone in the fashion of ancient Halicarnassus, and connected to each other with cobblestone streets and stairs.
At the heart of this village, at the juncture of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding mountains, is Erenler Sofrasi, an oasis of civility and fine taste.
Here, we will guide you through the delicious secrets of regional Aegean cooking with its accent on olive oil and fresh herbs, a very special and particularly healthy branch of Turkish cuisine. You will be invited to watch the cooking sessions while sipping a glass of wine, or join in for a hands-on experience if you’d rather. Either way, we guarantee that you will be entertained and, with the help of the written recipes we will offer you, be able to recreate the feast back at home.
We will serve you a lunch of all the wonderful dishes we have cooked at tables that look out at the Aegean, the most mythological of all seas.
Following this meal, we will drive you back to your ship or hotel.
