Your hostess Tatjana will bring the philosophy of food and the essence of Dalmatia to life as she takes you on a journey of discovery and indulgence of your senses. Everything in Tatjana's kitchen is made with love and her infectious enthusiasm for her craft will rub off on you for sure! Expect much more than a cooking class, today is about learning how life is lived in a historic town.
Your culinary tour starts with sourcing the ingredients as the freshness is key to the Dalmatian table. No sterilized supermarket products can be found here and the seasonal availability of nature's gifts determines what you’ll enjoy on your plate. Join Tatjana at the farmer's market, fish market and local butcher's shop (depending on your preference) to purchase the core ingredients of your meal straight from the source. Fully in her element, Tatjana will teach you how to see, smell and choose the freshest produce as the vibrant life of an outdoor market happens around you.
The cooking class is a hands-on introduction to every stage of the Dalmatian food preparation process, ranging from making homemade pasta, cleaning fish, preparing traditional Dalmatian entrees, side dishes sauces and marinades. Preparation in the local style, with local ingredients, in the company of locals! By the time you have finished your lunch you will feel like a true Dalmatian!
If you wish to spend more time with Tatjana, it is possible to book a homestay for up to 2 guests in her 13th century town palace home.
