Home cooking and hospitality in Mykonos
passionate way of life
Myconian hospitality is legendary and this tour for a small and select group offers a wonderful taste and flavour of what that means.
We all know food and drink is an important part of any holiday, as you immerse yourself in your destination’s culture and lifestyle.
It’s an essential ingredient in the whole experience.
The locals on the Island of Winds are proud of and passionate about their way of life.
They love to share it with visitors and you will be made to feel like one of the family.
We are hosted in a traditional homestead or Spiti, for a fun Greek cooking class and some little gastronomic secrets.
A very warm welcome awaits along with loukoumi, Greece’s own version of Turkish delight and a cheery glass of Teta’s liqueur.
There is a tour of the kitchen and garden and an informative session on how to cultivate your own vegetables all year-round.
In a corner of the garden will be a small taster of local specialities along with locally-made wine and raki.
There will be a masterclass on how to make delicious Greek spinach pie, stuffed tomatoes and peppers and the famous Greek dip, tzatziki – with your help and using fresh seasonal ingredients.
Afterwards enjoy a tasty lunch and savour the fruits of your labour, accompanied by locally produced wine.
Before saying goodbye, enjoy a photo opportunity at the Spiti, a lovely way to mark a memorable few hours.
You may also have some new recipe ideas to try out when you get home.
