Cooking Under the Open Sky
Close your eyes and inhale the country air pungent with the aromas of pines, wild herbs, and vegetables ripening in the field, then taste the almost imperceptible salt from the sea carried inland on the light breeze. This is the scent of Spetses that inspired the fifteenth-century Venetians to call it the “island of spices” or isola di spezie. These are the aromas that are captured in the traditional dishes of local and Greek cuisine, whose essence is the use of fine, fresh ingredients. Immerse yourself in this culinary cultural tradition of Greece with a unique outdoor cooking class on our all-organic produce farm at an idyllic setting on a gentle slope overlooking the island.
Create dishes in perfect harmony with nature, with the sun’s warmth on your skin and your ingredients arrayed in the tableau around you. Feel nature’s nurturing power as you learn about traditional organic farm techniques and compositing, then pick the ingredients for your recipe, choosing the finest, ripest vegetables and herbs from the farm. Cook it right there, on the farm, amid nature’s bounty then sit down and share the meal you just made with your friends. That’s the real Greek way.
