Besides being one of the most unique places to stay in northern Azerbaijan, Sheki’s Karvansaray, a 18th-century caravanserai converted into a hotel, also occasionally hosts masterclasses in making dolma, one of Azerbaijan’s most popular dishes made usually of grape leaves stuffed with a filling of meat, rice, herbs and nuts, with many variations around the country. Sheki’s special version of dolma involves cooking the dolma pieces in the city’s signature clay pots called "dopu". 

Masterclasses can be arranged through private guides or the Sheki Destination Management Organisation. (https://www.facebook.com/sheki.tic/)
