Traditional Farm Cooking Experience

Kato Petali, Sifnos

SIF-0501   (Tour Code)

Would you like to travel back in time for one of the most traditional cooking lessons you will ever experience? Sifnos, being the center of Cycladic gastronomy is the perfect destination for learning how to cook local Greek delicacies!  You will have a chance to meet a very hospitable local who will teach you the secrets of authentic recipes that have been passed on among generations, exclusively using locally grown farm products from organic seeds and fruits of trees (like apricot and pear trees of “Vasilika” variety which are rare to find in the rest of the world nowadays) so you can put your hands on preparing them in a traditional cuisine and later savor a delicious traditional meal.

Depending on your leisure time, you can choose among the following two options:

5-hour Morning Cooking Class with breakfast (9:00-14:00) 

The Morning cooking class starts with the delicious Sifnian breakfast (which includes Sifnos thyme honey, homemade marmalade jam, homemade cheese and eggs). You will then go for a walk around the farm to collect freshly picked products and return to the farmhouse to prepare two salad dishes, two appetizers and two main courses. A choice of local dry white or sweet sun-dried red wine will accompany your meal, served in a traditional farmhouse dining area. For dessert you will be offered a selection of seasonal fruits grown exclusively from the farm’s organic seeds.

3-hour Afternoon Cooking Class (17:30 – 20:30) 

Since you will start in the afternoon, you will be using local ingredients and fresh products that have already been picked earlier in the day from the farm’s vegetable garden.  You will then continue to help with the preparation of the 5 traditional recipes (similar as above, except for breakfast) and at the end of the lesson you will enjoy the fruits of your labor and have a true Sifnian dinner in a great homey atmosphere.
