For the ultimate local gastronomic voyage, participate in all of the action behind the culinary experience and join un on the Secret Dalmatia Private Day of Cooking with Chef Dalmatino near historic Trogir, as guests in his kitchen, herb garden and wine cellar, where the secrets of the highest quality local fare will be revealed - a tour exclusively offered by Secret Dalmatia!
Famed for his exquisite true Dalmatian meals with a unique contemporary twist, Chef Dalmatino brings out the very best of ancient Dalmatian traditions, offering fascinating insights into the approaches and the philosophy of food production in the region. A successful restaurateur in Holland back in the 1970s before retiring to his beloved native Dalmatia, Chef Dalmatino will help you sparkle your senses with the finest ingredients on offer.
A corner of his private villa has been allocated for our guests, allowing you access to a true master at work in the comfort of his own home. Cooking in Dalmatia does not start in the kitchen, so join Chef Dalmatino in a tour of his fascinating greenhouse and garden, home to almost every traditional herb and plant used on the Dalmatian menu.
The cooking class also includes a tour of another passion and gastronomic necessity - his own private wine cellar, where there will be an opportunity to not only learn more about local wines, but to taste the family grapes from the bottle. As with many families here, the secrets and traditions of wine-making have been passed down through generations of the family, with many stories to be recounted over a glass or two.
The actual cooking class depends on both the inspiration of the chef and the season, for the main condition for all ingredients is to be fresh and in season. Choose a meat, fish or vegetarian option for 2-3 dishes, and demonstration in 1-2 others, bringing about a fulfilled and hearty lunch for all at the end of the class, with some fine family wine and tales of the region by Chef Dalmatino himself!
