Cooking Workshop at Milia Mountain Retreat, a journey to the Cretan gastronomy.
- Small Group
- Full Day
- Gastronomy (Wine Tastings & Cooking Workshops)
Cooking and eating like a Cretan ... a fascinating cooking workshop, a great introduction to seasonal cooking and the culture of Cretan gastronomy - cuisine.
Every Wednesday from 12:30 pm -16:00 pm at our unique Milia Mountain Retreat, with your help, we cook traditional dishes, we mix our ingredients, highlight traditional recipes, and create unique tasteful combinations.
Prepare three recipes: a salad, a starter, and the main course (2 vegetarian dishes, one meat) in the most minimalistic way Cretan cooking deserves. Accompany your freshly cooked-by-your-own-hands meal with 2 different quality Cretan wines.
No fancy recipes & technics, this is a casual and friendly Greek-style get-together around a monastery wooden table in the breathtaking restaurant of Milia, without totally following the “Savoir Vivre”!
Our facilitator is Tassos, co-owner of Milia Mountain Retreat and Restaurant and a passionate adventurer in tastes, odors, local recipes, and exquisite wines. Not only will he guide you through this cooking class, but he will also propose new knowledge on authentic food preparation and the wine culture of the Cretans.
For non-alcohol drinkers, we gladly serve non-alcoholic beverages homemade lemonade, and orange juice.
In a very special kitchen, we get inspiration from the Cretan Gastronomy and create dishes that will accompany you throughout your life.
If you are not a cooking type, now is your chance to shine and discover the secret of the Cretans’ longevity.
Once you finish, have a seat and enjoy your first-ever Cretan lunch with local wine.
