Cooking class with a visit to the market
Wanna learn something new?
How to recognize fresh fish, how to clean it and cook it, which types of food are characteristic for this area, how to have a great time in Rijeka – cooking class holds all the answers!
In our cooking class we start from the beginning and that means the market – the beating heart of our town (trust us – if you haven't been to the market, it's like you haven't visited Rijeka at all).
As expert cooks we will blend in with the locals and start our search for the best groceries market has to offer.
However, the variety is every day different and we need to find what is the freshest and preferably the cheapest. On our quest we're walking through the pavilions where we will find dairy and meat specialities and on the outside stands we'll arm ourselfs with healthy fruits and vegetables.
And then the main catch of our market loot – that is also the catch of the fisherman from the night before.
The fish market!
Shells and mussels, crabs, calamary and octopus and tons of different kinds of fish in one place – a delightful sight to say at least. We seize the freshest and finish our supply.
After the market we leave the busy city and head towards the a small fisherman town Kostrena only 10 minutes drive away where in one of the restaurants a proffesional kitchen and a cook awaits us.
It's cooking time!!
Depending on the groceries we brought from the market, the cook makes a menu and we all get involved in preparation and cooking. And then taste how good we did.
To learn a bunch of new stuff, have fun buying groceries and cooking, enjoying delicious food and laughing all through the day – sounds like a interesting trip, doesn't it?
