What you'll do

We will welcome you in our traditional agrotourism with a refreshing home-made lemonade. Firstly you will learn how people and animals were living together in this house more than a century ago. We will then grab our bamboo baskets and head towards the river valley or other nearby locations to collect edible plants, flowers and seeds for approximately 1-2 hours. Back at the agrotourism, we will identify the plants we collected and we will learn about their medicinal properties. Last but not least, we will prepare a delicious and healthy meal using the plants we collected in combination with local organic vegetables and we will enjoy it together in our courtyard.

Learn more about Sara

Sara

Myself and my partner Tassos opened our B&B Aperanti Agrotourism in 2013. We are passionate about food and we grow our own biological vegetables, olives and fruits, which we use in our cuisine. I am a biologist and Tassos is an environmental scientist. We are nature lovers and we enjoy hiking in our countryside and the surrounding Machairas mountains. Since childhood, I have learned from my parents how to identify wild edible plants and to use them for their medicinal properties (for infusions, liqueurs, cooking recipes). Wherever I have lived, I share this passion with people and expand my knowledge by learning local traditions, reading books and attending seminars. Our foraging experience combines our love for nature, our knowledge of edible plants and our passion for healthy & creative cuisine.

What's included

Food
We will cook together a meal using the wild plants we collected, herbs from our garden, organic local vegetables and our own…
Drinks
We will serve you a home made lemonade (or a freshly squeezed orange juice) as a welcoming drink.

Where you'll be

The foraging part of the experience will take place in the surrounding countryside of our village Pera Oreinis, whereas the cooking lesson will take place at our B&B Aperanti agrotourism.
