Cooking workshops on Crete, Greece
Crete is world famous because of the Mediterranean diet. Not only are the Cretan eating habits amongst the healthiest world wide, the kitchen itself exists of many diverse dishes. From salads to pulses, from ribs to hare and lamb, from sardines to the most exotic shellfish… it has everything. Add the extra virgin olive oil and the fresh homegrown herbs and you have a recipe for success.
1 day cooking workshops on Crete
For many years we have been organizing a variety of cooking workshops where we teach you the basics of the Greek and Cretan cuisine. Together with the chef you will learn how to prepare a minimum of 5 dishes in one day so you can surprise friends and family once you have arrived back home. If you wish we will first visit the gypsy market where we can buy our ingredients together. At the end of our cooking day we will taste all our creations while enjoying a nice glass of homemade wine.
Extended cooking courses
For the professional and the cooking enthusiast we organize 7 and 10 day cooking courses. During these days we will teach you the secrets of the Greek and Cretan cuisine where we will concentrate on a different aspect of the Cretan diet every day. Together with the chef you will go and buy the ingredients, pick the necessary herbs, learn how to work with a wood oven and an original stone oven. Depending on the season we will take you on outings to a winery, olive oil factory or a cheese making shepherd. Should you have any special wishes like Greek desserts, pies or marmalade: please let us know, we are happy to oblige.
The Greek diet is suitable for vegetarians, patients with diabetes or people with lactose intolerance. There are many dishes that can be cooked for all these groups and we will be happy to organize a special cooking workshop for you should you be interested. Please send us an e-mail so we can inform you in detail.
