Cook Like a Local: Amazing Cooking Workshop for Families in Heraklion
Come experience truly authentic Cretan cooking with the locals!
In collaboration with one of the finest traditional Cretan restaurants in Heraklion, we have created for you a unique experience that will satisfy the most eager of families who are also foodies and the most demanding taste experts alike! This is a hands-on, educational yet playful cooking activity that delights the whole family.
We will start right from where the city’s heart beats, the Heraklion central market. With the help of Mr. Charis, an expert in traditional Cretan cuisine, you will explore a bustling central market and purchase fresh ingredients which you’ll then use to prepare traditional dishes.
After you are done with shopping, take a 10-minute walk back to the restaurant with Mr. Charis and learn to cook like a true local using traditional recipes handed down through generations with the same core ingredient – exquisite Cretan olive oil!
Afterward, enjoy tasting your culinary creations paired with some of Crete’s finest wines. Each private class will last about 4 hours, making this great for family bonding and creating unforgettable memories.
If you’re looking for an immersive culinary experience there is none like this one in all of Crete; you’re sure to love it!
