The food on board a YogaCruising tour

A varied, healthy, traditional, vegetarian cuisine

Not only vegetarians treasure our food onboard as a culinary peak experience. The Turkish Mediterranean cuisine has already in its tradition a manifold of vegetarian dishes. Innumerable starters and main courses are traditionally cooked without meat. However our chefs onboard have acquired and accumulated the savvy to create well balanced, healthy, modern, vegetarian meals. Each meal is composed of delightful vegetable dishes and fresh salads, all ingredients are of course locally produced, like the sun ripe fruits of the season, which are always part of a well balanced diet.

Cooking – cooking classes (Optional- booking on board)

There is the possibility to practice a cooking course, on board, of course, with a view of the sea. The cooking course program gives you new knowledge and new tools for your personal practice. You can spontaneously decide whether you want to spend the day hiking, reading, daydreaming, swimming or with a visit.

The vegetarian cuisine traditionally combines Turkish with Mediterranean specialties.

Depending on your interests, there are cooking courses on board (optional). You will learn how to prepare Turkish starters, filled dishes and main dishes, such as “imam bayildi”, which is eggplant dish.
