Wonderful cooking class experience with friends!
Enjoy hands-on Cooking Class and Wine Tasting Tour in the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.
Discover the crisp volcanic wine of Santorini and learn how to cook melt-in-the-mouth Greek dishes on a 5-hour food and wine tour of the island!
With a friendly local guide, visit two traditional wineries to sample up to eight glasses of the local wine and learn about Santorini’s volcanic soil. Then, help a local chef prepare a feast of classic Greek delicacies and island specialties, and savor them alongside a glass of popular Greek firewater such as ouzo!
The tour begins with the pickup of the hotel and then relax on the mountainside on volcanic soil. Producing the famous volcanic wine, the vineyard rests on mineral-rich aspa (the unique soil of the region) wich helps create the wine with crisp notes and excellent acidity.
After sampling some of the wine, continue to your second traditional Santorini winery to learn more about the various types of Santorini wine that are produced on the island.
Meet the chef – your cooking teacher – and then roll up your sleeves to help out with the preparation of several traditional Greek dishes. As you cook, listen to stories about the country’s gastronomy from your chef and learn about the typical dishes of Santorini. While the dishes cooking during your class will vary each time, you can expect to cook some Santorini staples such as tomato fritters alongside Greek classics, perhaps moussaka or a classic Greek salad.
Towards the end of your session, sit down with your chef to eat your creations! Water is served alongside the dishes, and you can also try a popular liquor – raki or ouzo – to finish your meal just like the locals.
Before bidding your chef a fond bidding your chef a fond farewell, take a recipe card to recreate the dishes back at home. Then, return to your minibus and finish your Santorini food experience with a hotel drop-off.
