What you can expect
Welcome to Zadar, a place where tradition meets the urban vibe. Here, on the mediaeval city square accompanied by the music of the Sea Organ and tempting smells from the nearby restaurants and bistros starts your cooking adventure.
Zadar, the historic centre of the mighty Venetian Republic and the capital of entire Dalmatian Region cherishes many unique recipes and traditions related to food. During the past it was an important harbour on the Adriatic Sea and home of many foreigners, merchants, sailors and tradors who enriched the local cuisine by introducing Mediterranean herbs and various spices to simple local meals.
Our cooking class starts at cafe Lovre on the central square of the city. Imagine yourself starting a day as a local with a cappuccino in a centrally located bar discussing about what you would like to have for lunch or supper. Along with your guide you will choose the ingredients for the lunch or supper: fresh fish and other sea food, varieties of fruits and vegetables, hard and soft cheeses, honey from the Velebit Mountain, fresh eggs, Dalmatian smoked ham, grappas, liqueurs, wine.
After shopping follows your cooking class ! The chef will be at your disposal all the time to give you some hints, show you some special techniques and share the small secrets of Dalmatian cuisine with you. Enjoy your time preparing the meal and Bon Appetite!
