Greek Cooking Odyssey

Spend a week on the island of Poros during the cooking vacation in Greece! Learn the local cuisine from a professional chef and live a slice of Greek Island life.

The ancient Greeks were among the first to discover the benefits of adding herbs and spices to their food. This process was used not only to enhance the tastes, but also provided medicinal benefits. Greek food is still a unique mix of fresh, seasonal ingredients and a generous blend of herbs and spices such as thyme, rosemary and oregano, which grow all over Greece. Greece is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea and has one of the largest coastal areas of any country in Europe, and for this reason fish is an integral part of Greek cuisine. Fresh seasonal vegetables are also a significant element in traditional Greek cooking. And Greek food would not be Greek without the olive oil, as olives are grown and olive oil produced in many parts of Greece.

Your culinary vacation in Greece will be very friendly and personal. Participants will have fun while experiencing real Greek culture, cooking and delicious food—all during this unique cooking school vacation on a beautiful, unspoilt Greek Island!
