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!

The trip was amazing -- even better than I expected. Katerina was a wonderful hostess. Her generosity of spirit was overwhelming. When we were out and about on the island and would run into friends and relatives of Katerina, she would always introduce us as her friends and through her actions, she always made us feel that way. In fact, I went and played doubles tennis with Katerina's regular group one night during my trip. Cooking in her kitchen was like cooking in the kitchen of a friend. Part of that friendliness related to the small group size. At maximum the week I was there, only two other people were cooking, and for much of the time, there were only two of us total. We enjoyed cooking together so much that we chose to cook every night rather than going out to eat. All the food we cooked was delicious. The accommodations were pleasant. Just a block off the beach, there was always time for a swim, and Poros, while small and off the beaten path, gave a good sense of Greek island life. Since I got home, I've been in regular email contact with Katerina and Brian and would relish the opportunity to go back and visit again any time. Susan, MS
