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. Your meal plans appeal to me because I'm not organized enough to plan ahead. So, I either fall back on the regulars which have become tired and boring or I'm searching every afternoon on-line for something new and then going to the store on the way home from work... several times a week. Too time consuming and expensive!
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.
Chef Aliye is truly passionate about creating recipes that are flavorful, delicious and easy to make. Her Mediterranean Meal Plans are fresh, creative, and easy to follow. I find it such a joy when I can use the plans to cook dinner for my family. After a long day, making dinner on a daily basis can be a challenge. So to have something that takes all of the hard work out of my weekly grocery shopping, and 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!
I've attended many cooking classes throughout the years, and yours rank right up there with the best (including celebrity classes). I love your passion and accessible style. I appreciate your patience, and how comfortable you make people feel in the kitchen.
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!
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.
