Cooking and Gastronomy Tour – Santorini
We will have a tour that leads away from the flocking crowd of the beach bar. This tour is ideal for those who prefer a bit of adventure mixed with Santorinian folklore from its oldest settlements!
We start the tour at 10:00am or at 16:00pm and first we visit Megalochori village —a place of old-world charm enveloped in woodsy wine aroma. Fully restored after the big earthquake of 1956 and with more than three centuries of history, Megalochori rise from the ruins as a place of historical mansions, old traditional houses, pirate hideaways and wine canavas. But 10:30 is still early in the morning so how about a Greek Coffee & a mastic submarine (you will just have to wait & see!) at a traditional café?
Next our way takes us to the traditional village of Eboreio, the largest traditional settlement on the island which every year attracts visitors with its stunning sequence of old windmills on the hillside, its narrow whitewashed alleyways, gorgeous blue dome churches, a 3rd Century BC sacred site to a pagan goddess and a ruined medieval castle to satisfy even the most demanding photo opportunity seeker! Later we visit an estate where we learn from about the unique products that only grow in the arid Santorinian soil, the salty climate and the warm Mediterranean air. These cultivated products bear a protected geographical indication and are of exceptional quality, remaining faithful to the traditional methods that were passed down for generations. We will be guided around the estate’s crops as well as the private processing unit where we’ll have a chance to witness the life cycle of Santorinian tomatoes, caper, fava beans and santonuts, from the soil to the package! But of course not before you try it yourself!
Afterwards we get creative with local products in a cooking class Santorinian style! There, you will have the chance to create your own plates with the guidance of a professional chef and by the end you will not only know the recipes of traditional dishes but you will also get to enjoy delicious plates of your creation. When lunch is over feel free to relax and have a desert enjoying the magnificent view! , Notes: A gift bag per reservation or couple is included in the price containing traditional bottles of wine (red and white), local handmade products (Santorini sauce, tomato jam, sundried tomatoes, limited production Santorinian Plive oil, wine opener, dropper and stopper), Min Pax: 2 and max Pax: 12 maintained for your comfort
