What you'll do

Are you ready to cook like a local Greek? Meet us in the reception of Kritsa Gastronomy Hotel. We will drive 2km to our farm. There we will introduce you to our vision. We will walk to the farm's organic garden, you will collect all the necessary ingredints, fresh eggs from the chicken house and herbs from our herbgarden. Then, next to the wooden-fired oven in the open kitchen with our help you will cook local recipes and we will show you our secrets. During the cooking we will offer you "tsipouro" our local drink with small meze and we will set the table and you will enjoy what we cooked. A bag with small gifts and wonderful memories will be our goodbye.

Ein entspannter Kochabend auf einer sehr ordentlich geführten Biofarm, man spürt mit wieviel Liebe und Leidenschaft diese Farm bewirtschaftet wird. Sehr herzliche Begrüßung mit Willkommensdrink, anschließend gemeinsames Ernten der Zutaten im Garten, entspannte romantische Stimmung auch beim Kochen. Kocherfahrung nicht notwendig, relativ einfache aber sehr schmackhafte Gerichte. Abschließend gemeinsames Dinner bei Sonnenuntergang.....ein wundervolles wenn auch leicht überteuertes Event.

My father and I thoroughly enjoyed our cooking course with Eleni and her family on the farm. Great food, lovely setting and very open and inviting people. It was great to pick ingredients, see where they came from and then turn them into tasty home cooked food. A must if you visit Portaria!
