Cretan Cookery Workshop

Cooking with Koula - a fabulous hands-on Greek cookery workshop

This cookery workshop is really something different and is enhanced by the fact that the number of participants is limited to between four and ten maximum, so as a small group it has a very personal feel to it.

It takes place in a very old building called ‘Fabrica‘ in the old neighbourhood of Vamos in Apokoronos in western Crete. The atmosphere will heighten your ‘journey’ into the aromas and tastes of the traditional Cretan cuisine. An old olive press, Venetian arches and big millstones dating back to 1846 surround you as you put on your apron ready for the hands-on experience with the ever popular cook, Mrs Koula.

 

You will prepare and discuss some traditional Cretan dishes which are made of pure, fresh, local Cretan ingredients such as olive oil, vegetables, cheese, meat, wine, etc. Lots of useful information about the herbs, olive oil and other ingredients is given together with explanations about their nutritional value and ways of use.

 

After the dishes are prepared and cooked – with your help of course – you will eat together at a long monastery-style table, enjoying the dishes you have created together with local wine, bread, greek music and good conversation.

At the end of the workshop you will be given copies of the recipes you have used. Additionally, you can purchase the book of Mrs Koula “Foods of Crete” and you can share with her the knowledge that has been passed down through generations of her family.
