“Food is a love language and a boundless way to connect with people. I’ll teach you how to make dishes that have stood the test of time as they have been loved far and wide. We will look at the stories and traditions of the recipes, how they’ve travelled geographies and ages, and then how to make them to delight the eyes, hearts and stomachs of your loved ones.” Melek Erdal, passionate chef and food story teller who loves to spend time with culinary masters to learn from their hands and hear their stories.
The class will include:
About the chef: Melek
Melek is an Istanbul-born Kurdish chef, writer, cookery teacher and homegrown Hackney-ite. Her style of cooking is strongly influenced by her Kurdish and Alevi heritage and the broader Mediterranean and Middle East, as well as growing up in multicultural London. Having opened her cafe in Dalston in 2012, Melek has moved on to community activism working both on a local and international level both teaching cookery in communities and making films and writing about food culture. Melek is passionate about using food as a way to bring people together and communicate culture and history.
All proceeds from our masterclasses help fund our community meal service which has become a critical food support service delivering 70,000 free nutritious, tasty meals per year to households struggling to access food, and is needed now more than ever by our community.

Note On Ticket Price Change
Apologies we have had to pause offering a concession rate for our paying in-person cookery classes. Due to the pandemic we cannot fit as many people in the kitchen which means classes generate less vital revenue needed to keep the charity going.
Refunds/transfers: we require a minimum of 7 days' notice for any cancellations or transfers once you have booked onto a class to enable us to try to resell your ticket.
Please understand our charity needs time to enable us to try to resell your tickets as we rely heavily on the income generated. You are also welcome to give your ticket to a friend or family member in case of last minute illness (just email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know).
Vouchers: To redeem a voucher purchased on our site, please contact us to book a place. If contacting us by email please attach your voucher. If telephoning, have your voucher to hand so you can quote the voucher number.
