I specialize in home-cooked Turkish and Mediterranean-style cuisine, using high-quality farm fresh ingredients. My father was Turkish, and I connect with my heritage mostly through the food. I have lived firsthand the healing power of eating high-quality real food for our health, both physical and spiritual. I’m also known for the use of spices in my cooking. I just love the alchemy, history, and flavors that spices bring to food. I started cooking because I had lost connection with my body (which manifested itself as disease), and continue to cook for my family and others to this day because connecting with others over food and culture is something that keeps me motivated. My passion is teaching people how to make time to enjoy cooking homemade food and how to fit it into busy schedules. I love to collaborate with others. I teach cooking classes, provide in-home meal prep services, curate and cook for intimate events, and run a monthly spice subscription service called Spice Club.

Aliye and her family were fantastic. She made some amazing foods, drinks, and built a cool atmosphere. Spending time at her home was better than a restaurant experience. We brought a team to Aliyes for a private dinner and it went off so well. Thanks!

It was great. Compares with the Hobbit https://www.hobbitrestaurant.com/ Excellent food, conversation and atmosphere. Quiet, no rush for a 2nd seating. I'd go again. Met very nice people. Hoping to get together with them again too.
