Cooking Vacations in Greece
The culture of Greece has evolved over thousands of years, making it one of the hallmarks of western civilization, home to some of the greatest art and philosophy the world has ever known, and a truly remarkable destination for a cooking vacation. The Greek territory comprises the mainland and thousands of islands scattered in the Aegean and Ionian Sea, offering amazing beaches and inlets, and waters so colorful and clear they defy description.
Greek cuisine is an example of the healthy Mediterranean diet, featuring fresh ingredients such as fish, olives (including olive oil), fruits and vegetables. You will explore and taste traditional dishes of Greek cuisine during your cooking lessons—moussaka, stifade, Greek salad, spanakopita, Souvlaki, and more—and explore the culture and natural beauty of gorgeous country. During your Greek cooking vacation you will also enjoy retsina (white or rosé wine sealed with pine resin), delectable dips (such as tzatziki), fresh cheeses, dolmades, and of course olives and fresh seafood!
Your Greek cooking vacation might include visits to local islands, to world-famous archeological sites, or to stunning Mediterranean beaches. Of course like all cooking vacations with The International Kitchen, it will feature hands-on cooking lessons with delicious Greek dishes, fascinating excursions, wonderful accommodations, and memories to last a lifetime.
