Croatian Creations - Outdoor Edition with Peka
A local, hands-on cooking class in Zagreb - outdoors, using the traditional "Peka"
Enjoy an authentic, intimate afternoon of cooking and conversation with an experienced Croatian culinary artist in her home!
Experience the real flavours of Croatia while you learn how to prepare and cook an authentic Croatian dish in a private, hands-on cooking class. First stop, meet your Croatian-cuisine-queen, Vanja, at Zagreb's famous open market, Dolac, to pick up only the freshest ingredients for your upcoming meal. Next, head back to her home, put on an apron and get your hands dirty!
Follow Vanja's instructions and listen to the stories that will surely be shared as you prepare your authentic Croatian recipes. You will cook under the traditional "peka" which is a unique experience in and of itself. Peka is an iron dome placed over a pan with your food, and then covered in hot charcoal and left to cook.
Included in your cooking class will be an appetizer, a main meal and a dessert - all of which you will participate in creating. As your meal boils, brews and bakes away, indulge in some local wine, rakija and other specialties.
Lastly, let the conversation, food and drink flow as you savour the flavours of the meal and the local atmosphere, alike. This will truly be one of the most unique experiences of your travels!
Number of guests: 2-15
Duration: Approx. 5 hours
Included: Shopping at Dolac, welcome drinks/schnapps, cooking lesson, 3-course meal, local wine, transfer to and from Vanja's home
