Scents and Tastes of the Dubrovnik Garden Region – Cooking class adventure

Love to eat and love to cook? Join us on a half-day unique culinary experience and learn to cook authentic Dalmatian dishes in a country family home just outside of Dubrovnik! Uslast!

Description

We invite you to a typical Croatian family home, surrounded by nature, to learn how to prepare the signature dish of Croatia’s coastal regions “Peka“- a selection of vegetables and meat drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with herbs, and then baked to perfection under an iron bell!

It is traditional for Dalmatian people to cook Peka in their fireplaces at home. Many Croatian families, especially those in the countryside, even have special outdoor ovens for this purpose. Your friendly host will guide you through the key steps in preparing the perfect Peka from beginning to end.  One of the interesting things about Peka is that you can make it with any kind of meat you like, such as veal, chicken, lamb and even octopus. Depending on the chosen meat, this dish is slow cooked between one and a half to three hours.

After a short introduction you will be invited to pick seasonal vegetables and garnishings from the family home garden, before you commence the cooking process. As the Dalmatian cuisine is diverse and rich, vegetarians will have a choice of another authentic traditional meal. Our cooking class adventure ends with a delicious lunch accompanied by unlimited consumption of homemade wine.
