Chef Aliye is truly passionate about creating recipes that are flavorful, delicious and easy to make. I can have dinner ready for my family of 3 in under 30 minutes is a win win for us! She is such an inspiration for redefining what a home cooked meal can be! –Deanna

I have learned in Aliye’s cooking classes how to use spices and herbs in my cooking to enhance flavor. I used to always use the same herbs and spices that I had growing up, and Aliye introduced me to some unique herbs and spices that I never knew what to do with in my own cooking. –Kelli

We really enjoy these meals.  I’m so much more organized, I’ve lost a few pounds, and I’m spending less on groceries. It’s super satisfying to prepare and enjoy quality meals. –Hailie

“I was a terrible meal prepper before, but with Aliye’s tips I’ve become more efficient in managing my time.” 

“Having ideas and recipes already picked out made it so much fun and less stressful.”

Aliye, I love your cooking style and your creativeness. Your use of spices in the Mediterranean Meal Plan recipes are fantastic!!! Loving making these recipes.  Today I made the ditalini with tomatoes and lemon oil. OMG Amazing good. Can’t stop eating it. –Chris

I have been hiring Aliye for the past year for many classes which are so much fun! A group of 6-7 of us get together at my house for a series of classes where we pay Aliye a set price for her time and the food. We learn about different cooking techniques while sipping wine and enjoy a fantastic meal at the end. This has been a great way to spend time with my friends and get to meet new ones! –Kristi
