A Sensory Culinary Experience
Enhance your holiday by exposing your senses to flowers, fruits, herbs, birds, bees, vegetables, fish, meat . . .
Plus all the sun, sea and sand of our Greek isle
Of course the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet have long been known. Now a new study proves that Greek islanders live longer: Ikaria Study
Is it the food or the pace of life that makes the difference? On Paros we offer both!
During these cooking classes you not only learn a Greek island style of cuisine, you experience the more traditional, natural way of gathering and preparing products.
We at Paros Paradise have added accommodation, transportation and travel advice to the classes to make a complete workshop package, including meet and greet at the port. Includes a bonus tasting of local olive oils, wines, suma(raki)and ouzo.
Five Day workshop: A different menu and itinerary each day: Includes a trip into the mountains to pick herbs, capers or whatever else is available at the time. There is also the option of going with the chef to the local markets or to a wine tasting at Moriatis Winery & Museum. We try to fine tune each day’s menu and activities to participants’ wishes and the island’s seasons. If you are an early-riser, you can even buy fish directly from the fishing boats.
Basic Session: you participate in the preparation of 5 different dishes during the 4 hour period. Then you share the resulting meals with friends and other taverna guests. Preparation takes place in a spacious taverna kitchen using both traditional wood oven and modern equipment. Vegetarian, sea food or non-dairy options are available.
We can quote a 3 or 4 day option but we don’t offer one day or drop-in classes. Rates vary with season and level of accommodation.
Classes not available during high season (15 July to 10 September) due to busy taverna kitchen.
Please contact us with your expected month, number in party and level of desired accommodation for your specific quote.
“Thank you for putting the cooking class together as it too was a marvelous experience. Visitors to the island are probably much like we are as they enjoy having something a bit unusual planned for them that they can participate in.” John H., Sacramento, Ca.
