Workshops & Classes
FUN WORKSHOPS AND TASTINGS
Make time for cheese and wine tastings, or learn how to mix rakomelo, a local alcoholic specialty, or simply join the fitness class; it’s all inclusive and intended to keep you active and participate, but only if you want to!
Wine is part of the Greek ethos since antiquity, it was so important in their lives, trade and celebrations they even had a god for wine. The fertile land of Kos was a major producer of quality wine; its wine was served to nobles from Babylonia to Rome.
We are very proud of our small selection in our cellar, compiled with the guidance of well-known sommeliers. Today you will sample and learn about unique Greek cultivars, award winning wines, and regional gems plus enjoy locally produced cheese to complement the wines.
Olive oil soap making
In this tutorial we will have fun teaching you how to make your own soap. Industrially produced soaps often have additives that may dry or irritate your skin. Learning how to make your own natural soap with pure olive oil will be a back to basics experience that you will enjoy. Best part is that if you continue with this you will always control the ingredients. You will take your own bar back home with you.
Artisanal traditional recipes
Over two days we will be preparing a number of traditional recipes. Starting with our own probiotic kefir, a multifaceted fermented yogurt, a lovely healthy tahini spread with carob, honey and hazelnut that shames Nutella, a chamomile based body cream, making a breakfast seed and nut bar called pasteli and the local Rakomelo liqueur from Cretan raki infused with our local honey and spices. You will also be able to take home a small bottle from the sample we make but we are not sure it will last that long!
Greek cuisine class
Ah, vacation! No deadlines, no responsibilities. And the perfect time to cook! Sometimes it’s great to take a break from your kitchen, however one noteworthy travelling experience is experiencing new food and cooking somewhere new. There’s no better time to learn a new cuisine or dish. It’s time to expand your recipe domain and learn from our chef’s traditional recipes.
Fitness class, pilates
Stay fit and have fun. A fusion functional exercise session is offered, starting from stretching, adding part pilates, and low impact aerobics to cardio & strength training. Recommended to keep you healthy and to burn the extra calories!
