Hands-on home-style cooking class on “Poor People’s Kitchen” of Pelion.
Our guests will visit the herb garden and the organic garden of Amanita Guesthouse and collect the ingredients for the dishes we will prepare. We will then enter the kitchen, where our guests will receive a small lecture about the basic principles of the home-style Pelion region gastronomy, which is mainly based on wild and cultivated herbs, greens and vegetables. With our guidance and assistance the participants will prepare two authentic local dishes, among those still cooked in the homes of the region and recorded in Filareto’s cookery book “The culinary curiosity of a hotelier”. While preparing the meal, we will have a glass of tsipouro (the local spirit). After cooking we will all together enjoy our creations with local organic wine, chatting and stories.
The dinner includes appetizers, salad, local cheese, home-made bread and two courses cooked by the participants. As a dessert we will serve spoon sweets for which the area is famous. The first and main courses depend on the season and the production of our garden.
