Local cuisine – The real taste of Greece – Cooking Classes
Every meal is an event to be savoured!
Our meeting point will be at the Old Port parking area from where strolling through the narrow alleys we will reach Corfu’s open fruit & fish market. We will buy our fresh organic products, harvested from the Corfiot fields a few hours earlier, listen to the local producers trying to sell their goods by competing of the loudest voice and feel the smell of the undoubtedly fresh fish, vegetables fruit and herbs! A real unique experience! Of course the price negotiation (pazari) with the vendors is part of the deal-game! Next stop is at a small shop for fresh dairy products and cheese and traditionally baked bread.
Once we are ready with our supplies we will be transferred at a country home where the chef will teach us how to prepare and cook traditional Greek recipes. A welcome treatment consisted of local delicacies is offered upon arrival and then you can decide if you prefer to participate “hands on” or just watching the preparation and enjoy the lunch when ready to serve. Whatever your choice is, you will spend a few relaxing hours and treated as part of our family! The almost forgotten technique of cooking in a wood-fired oven goes back centuries and it is worth not only to attend but mostly to taste the delicious cooked meals! All products are local, organic and fresh, prepared and cooked as our mothers and grandmothers used to cook creating in a humble way the greatness of the Greek cuisine! Experience the unique Greek hospitality and the family atmosphere amply and hearty provided to you!
