A great day. There were only the two of us on our cooking class which was fabulous. We were picked up at our apartment in Dubrovnik for the drive south to the family farm where the class was held. On the drive our wonderful driver provided a lot if info on the areas we were driving through including historical details from Roman to more recent events and current farming developments. Upon arrival we were welcomed by our delightful hosts as if we were friends dropping in for regular visit. We prepared our food in the kitchen talking and working with various family members who came and went. The farm come restaurant is mostly self sufficient growing almost all the food they need from eags, meat, vegetables, fruit, olives (they make their own olive oil) and grapes. And, yes they also make their own wine and spirits. Cheese is sourced from a cousin living nearby. The family proudly shared their history (they've been there since at least 1536) and how they maintain their way of life.
The trip to a farm and going through a typical day’s meals from their farm products was amazing. The typical breakfast of walnut liqueur, rose petal liqueur, myrtle liqueur, and grappa with quince and cheeses was so fun! Then participation in preparing lunch of lentil soup, stuffed peppers, zucchini and eggplant, our homemade bread, fruits and cheeses and fried donuts (a Christmas treat) was so fun and filling! We also walked the farm and learned about its self-sufficiency. It was a terrific experience!!
This cooking really immerses you into the lifestyle of growing and preparing your own food on a regular basis in Croatia. You gather the ingredients for everything they have you help cook, and learn you only need simple ingredients in order to make food you will enjoy. The hosts are extremely friendly and provide an excellent experience. Would recommend to learn more about Croatian life and making your own fresh food.
This was an incredible experience. Our hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable. The country house is set in the most idyllic location and the food we cooked was delicious! This was our favourite activity in Croatia!
We had an amazing tour with Adin and Sanin. The coffee workshop was amazing. The day was really well spent and at your own pace. Could't have asked for anything better.
