Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
If you want to learn all the secrets of Greek cuisine, Ms Kaiti – your host – is the best person to learn from! My favorite part of the experience is sitting down to eat your homemade food at the end. Drinks are included, too, making it a great alternative to lunch in an island restaurant!
What You Can Expect
Then, don your apron, roll up your sleeves and start learning all about classic Greek dishes from your private host. While many countries in the Mediterranean region take pride in their cuisine, Greece is passionate about it, and recipes are often handed down from generation to generation.
Learn how to cook classic Greek staples, like meatballs, spinach pie, souvlaki (skewered meat, fish or vegetables) and, of course, moussaka – a rich layered creation made with eggplant, lamb and béchamel. See how to wrap vine leaves around rice to make dolma, and try making stuffed vegetables, baked in a traditional wood-fired oven.
Toward the end of your session, sit down with your host and group to eat your creations! Dishes are paired with local wine, and you can also enjoy some home-baked bread, too. As you eat, chat about the Mediterranean diet, hearing about its health benefits and links to longevity. Before leaving, your host will give you a recipe card so you can recreate the food at home to impress family and friends! Finish your tour with a drop-off at the original departure point.
