Full description
A 6-hour gastronomic experience that includes a tour of the agrotourism unit, the traditional food preparation area, the Cookware Museum and the village. You will visit an Agrotourism unit and an Arcadian workshop in a small village, located 70km (45 mi) from Kalamata in the heart of mountainous Arcadia region in Peloponnese. The workshop produces traditional products and is built on 2.5 acres of land, the place offers stunning views towards Mt. Lykaio and the village of Karytaina. The two-storey stone-built establishment also houses a library with over 650 cookbooks, where you can discover age-old local recipes; a Cookware Museum, showcasing items used by Greek housewives in villages as far back as the beginning of the 1900s; and a restaurant that serves local delicacies. Part 1: Tour in the fields and Veggie Picking You’ll get to enjoy a tour in the fields, pick fresh veggies from the garden and feel closer to nature than ever (available from March to October). And if you visit it in June, you can even participate in the wheat harvesting in the wheat fields! Part 2: Visit of the traditional Workshop You’ll participate in a guided tour of the Arcadian workshop, including the traditional food preparation area, the Cookware Museum and the library. Leaf through old cookbooks and view rare 19th century photos in the library. Or take a step back in time and get a taste of village life back in the 1900s in the Museum. Part 3: Cooking class with a local mum You may also participate in a Greek cooking class with a local cook, and learn how to make kolokythopita (courgette or pumpkin pie), tzatziki, trachanokeftedes (fermented milk pasta balls), rooster with hylopites (egg pasta), glyka tou koutaliou (spoon sweets), marmalades, or other local food and delights. What could be better than enjoying authentic Mediterranean cuisine prepared by your own two hands? Part 4: Traditional Local Feast You'll have lunch at the restaurant, where you will feast on everything you made along with local products from the Arcadian workshop and other Greek local producers. The meal includes appetizers, mains and dessert, accompanied by organic wine (red, white or rose), soft drinks, Greek coffee or tea. Part 5: Shopping at the gift shop (optional) You’ll get the chance to find more than 50 local delicacies at the gift shop, including walnut kourabiethes, melomakarona, skaltsounia, pasta, spoon sweets, pine honey, local myzithra cheese, and Greek herbs and spices.
