Cycladic Cuisine - "Hands-On" Greek Cooking
A renowned Greek chef will introduce you to the gastronomical culture and heritage of Santorini Island and teach you how the experts prepare the exquisite Greek cuisine. Starting from the Old port you will take the cable car up to Fira town where you will be met by your local guide. Together you will walk along the narrow cobblestone streets before you board your mini-bus for a drive to one of the most beautiful traditional settlements of the island, the village of Megalochori. Arriving at the village you will take a walk through the stone cobbled streets of the village admiring its impressive mansions before you reach the charming restaurant located within one of these old traditional mansions. Upon arrival at the restaurant you will be greeted by the owner and well known Greek Chef while being offered a glass of Santorinian wine and taking a few bites of the unique Santorinian products. The chef and his team will be then give you a brief introduction to Cycladic island cuisine and particularly to the local products of Santorini like capers, fava (small yellow peas), cherry tomatoes and local cheeses. As this is an interactive "hands on" cooking class, you put on your apron and get ready to mix and mingle the ingredients in order to prepare an entire Greek menu consisting of the appetizers, the salad, the main course and the dessert. Once the dishes are prepared you will be able to sit back in the beautiful and relaxing veranda and enjoy a tasteful Greek meal you have just prepared accompanied by delicious Santorinian wine. As a souvenir of your class you will be given a recipe booklet of the dishes you have prepared and you get to keep your apron to use at your next barbeque back home! Following a memorable experience you will board your coach for your drive back to Fira town where you can either stay and explore on your own or make your way to the cable car and back to the yacht.
