Can a cooking experience be also a travel in time?
Start your journey at a 13th century Castle and discover, through interactive stories,the products of the land of Messinia and the food philosophy since ancient times;
visit an olive oil Mill, that has an “ottoman” cooking story to reveal and end your journey in a local tavern cooking together with the owner, Georgia, traditional greek recipes.
Without a doubt one of the most popular pastimes for a Greek is his food, they say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, well that saying must have been made up by a Greek woman! With so much time being spent on food, it’s easy to say that the recipes have been perfected and are truly out of this world. A gift to take back home from your holiday in Peloponnese will be the knowledge to prepare a healthy, tasty Mediterranean meal from your kitchen back home.
