The volcanic eruption that took place in the island of Santorini almost 3500 years ago left the overwhelming Caldera that you see today. With more than 300 days of sunshine and its rich volcanic soil, the island yields a bounty of unusual indigenous herbs and vegetables. White eggplant, capers and caper leaves, fava (small yellow peas), exquisite baby tomatoes are all grown virtually without water.

Take a unique opportunity to learn more about the Cycladic islands’ cuisine, where your experienced host will welcome you with fresh juice, coffee and traditional Greek cookies and provide interesting information specifically about Santorini, and the island’s unique local products.

The cooking class was lovely. beautiful restaurant and location. It was long- I am glad we did it but unless you are a total foodie like I am - it really takes a lot of the day. We left at 10 am from hotel and returned at 4:30 basically. The people were lovely and it was informative. The owner/manager prob spent an hour to hour and half taking about the food and history of food. We were a little confused because they asked us to try the food as we were preparing in the kitchen so we thought maybe that is how we were eating and then they after that had us sit and proceeded to serve us a four course meal- that took a lot of time with the wine pairing. it was a beautiful experience but I think if people want to do it they have to realize its very long. I teach and take lots of food classes here in the States and ours are just much shorter so it's a different experience which I appreciate.
