Another one of our secret gems – a Croatian traditional cooking lesson in the beautiful countryside of Konavle.
Departure will be in the afternoon hours and you'll visit a beautiful old rural household where our experienced cooks and hosts will be waiting for you ready to teach you all the local tips and tricks.
If you don't even know what ''peka'' made under the bell is, it's one of the absolute best dishes in Croatia, specifically the coastal area of Dalmatia. It's a baked dish with meat and veggies made in a tray or pot in a fireplace. There are a few options on how to make it and the most popular options are veal and octopus.
If you make this at home, rest assured you will be highly praised by your guests, just like you will be thankful to our hosts for showing you this. It's not the easiest process tho so bring a lot of patience with you. At the end of course you will taste the fruits of your labour and enjoy some great drinks with this as well. You can use this time to write down the recipe and ask any additional questions you may have.
You will even get a little present in the end, which we will not reveal - opt this day and find out by yourself. We dare you to prepare it back home for friends and family and send us a pic!
Cooking is at once child’s play and adult joy. And cooking done with care is an act of love. – Craig Claiborne
