Informationen uber das Santorini Small Group Cooking Class and Wine Tasting
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!
Numbers are limited to eight on this small-group tour, ensuring personalized attention at all times.
Start your Santorini food tour with a hotel pickup, and then relax on the short transfer to a local vineyard that's etched into the mountainside on volcanic soil. Producing some of Santorini's renowned volcanic wine, the vineyard relies on mineral-rich aspa (the region's unique soil) that helps create wine with crisp notes and distinctive high 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 is produced on the island. Hear about assytriko, a widely cultivated white-wine grape, as well as wines such as nykteri and vinsanto that are both made from assytriko but boast entirely different flavors. Try a few more glasses of wine, and then travel to a nearby traditional Greek restaurant for your cooking class.
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 cooked 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 and group 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 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.
