Cooking Class

Introduction to seasonal cooking and the culture of the Cretan gastronomy


Experiential workshop of a 5-dish menu.

Around our monastery table and everybody’s participation, we mix our ingredients based on traditional recipes and create unique tasteful combinations.

We prepared ourselves a feast, learning about ingredients, techniques and traditions in the process. The instruction was clear and complete, and I have since received the recipes by e-mail, so I can make the dishes at home.

We introduce you to the most basic ingredients of the cretan cuisine. We wear our aprons and get ready for the cooking! Less is more is the first rule. Our cooking team will guide you step by step to the gastronomy secrets of the cretan cuisine. Chop, stir, mix and be part of the most funny and creative lab.

Once you finish, have a seat and enjoy your first self-made cretan lunch with bottled local wine.
