Ever sit in Anatolian Gyro on Sheepshead Bay Road (and who among us hasn’t?), happily munching on a refreshing cornucopia of humus, stuffed grape leaves, baba ghanoush, tabule, or one of their succulent lamb or chicken kebabs, and think to yourself, “Gee, I wish I could cook food as awesome as this?”

Well, good news: Now you actually can make food as awesome as that, because those mind-readers at the Turkish Cultural Center of Brooklyn knew you wanted to learn how to cook Turkish food, and they are not ones to disappoint.

Turkish Cooking Classes will be held once a month at the Turkish Cultural Center of Brooklyn (245 Avenue U between West 4th Street and Van Sicklen Street), beginning April 23 at 3 p.m.

This month’s featured recipes will be Manti and Burma Baklava.

RSVP to the center by calling (646) 241-6600 or e-mailing
