Cooking class with a visit to the market
Wanna learn something new?!
We are organizing cooking classes with a cooking school that offers cooking courses and workshops throughout the year. The school is spread over 100 m2 with a beautiful view of the sea and the city. It is located right on the city
market, which allows you to buy fresh and authentic products on a daily basis.
Descripion of the cooking class
After we meet at the meeting point we head towards the city market where we spend about 45 minutes. At the market we will visit the three main pavilions, the one with dairy products where we will taste some homemade cheeses, then we will go to the meat pavilion and of course we will pass through the fish market which is the crown of our market.
After we buy all the necessary groceries, we will head to our school, which is only a few steps away from the city market. We will welcome you to the school with a welcome drink and coffee. After we sit down comfortably we start cooking for about two hours.
We will make 2 dishes, one as a light appetizer and the other as a main course.
After each cooked meal we take a break to enjoy the food and wines which we have carefully selected for you. The choice of wine will depend on the choice of menu. From our offer we offer Rose Shiraz, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and others.
