Local Food Safaris

A bus safari that’s a superb combination of these two wonderful cuisines. Join us for an immersive day visiting some of the best purveyors of ingredients starting with an access all areas visit to a colossal Lebanese bakery where the bread cooks in just 8 seconds…taste it warm with za’atar and a coffee then visit our friends who starting roasting nuts in the ‘70s and now showcase a whole range of Lebanese ingredients. We journey into the Turkish world with a visit to a family bakery and then an emporium with many tastes of Turkish ingredients and guidance on how to use them from knowledgeable hosts. You’ll taste and learn recipes and techniques then enjoy a delicious lunch with the restaurant’s signature mint and lemon drink, followed by sweets and Turkish stretchy ice-cream. A day of spices and generosity.

  • Easily gathering ingredients to create your own Middle Eastern feast at home
  • Learning to ‘eat like a local’ at one of the places you’ll continue to cross town to visit

It's been on my mind to contact you to acknowledge the absolutely fantastic day I had while participating on your Lebanese-Turkish food safari led by the gorgeous Ulku. The day was outstanding; from the hidden little gems around Sydney showcasing the cuisines of Lebanon and Turkey, the company of like minded foodies, the ease of transport from the fabulous Peter to last, but definitely not least, the beautiful Ulku, who provided use with insightful information and personal stories of her Turkish upbringing in Australia. ( What a treat.) Congratulations to you all, what a way to spend a Sydney Saturday! Have already booked my next safari.... Thanks again, Sharon Beard
