Tolga and his family have swung open the doors to their home – surrounded by their organic garden and overlooking Ayvalı's deep gorge – to offer a taste of true home-style Cappadocian cooking. They offer meals and highly recommended cooking classes with hands-on appeal, guided by Tolga's tiny dynamo of a mother, Hava. It's a foodie haven. Reservations are essential.

It's on the Ayvalı main road. Tolga can arrange transport to/from Ayvalı from your base in Cappadocia. They also have a couple of rooms for guests who want a homestay-style experience.
