On the 23rd October we arrive in Corfu, spending a full day in port. The following excursion is described as ‘something different’:-
A unique opportunity to learn how to prepare some of the most famous Greek dishes in a local restaurant in Corfu.
Greek cuisine is famous throughout the world for its distinctive flavours. Herbs and fresh ingredients from the countryside are the inspiration for many dishes.
Olives, typical village bread and creamy feta cheese, accompanied by the traditional aperitif, ‘ouzo’, will be served when you arrive at one of Corfu’s favourite tavernas. Next comes the fun part – you’ll watch a fascinating cookery demonstration on how to prepare famous Greek dishes and pick up a few tips from the chef along the way!
Learn how to prepare ‘tzatziki’ with yoghurt, garlic and cucumber; cod roe ‘taramosalata’ and a typical Greek salad, known as ‘horiatiki’. Find out how to make the best ‘moussaka’ ever, and then sit down to feast on these delicious creations. Local wine will enhance the flavours, followed by seasonal fruits and coffee.
You’ll drive through the charming colonial town of Corfu and enjoy a brief orientation of the Old Town, before heading back to the harbour. The tour will end at the port, however you have the option to be dropped off in the town of Corfu to explore independently and return to the ship on your own.
This excursion lasts just 3½ hours leaving the port at 10:30 getting back at around 2pm.
