Gourmet foodie tour Greece 2014

Hi Everyone,

Join me, Mary Valle, for the ultimate gourmet foodie tour to Greece.

It will be 10 glorious days of luxurious foodie indulgence, traditional Greek culture and living the Mediterranean lifestyle that we love so much.

The tour begins in Athens where we will explore the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus and the Ancient Agora.  We will visit the colorful central marketplace of Athens, tasting local delicacies along the way.

The magical island of Crete is next where we will stay in a traditional style villa, living like a local.  Visits to local wineries, shopping for the freshest local produce to be prepared later for that night’s dinner.  We will also spend some time in Chania, the town centre, exploring and dining at the breathtaking seaside tavernas in the old port.

We finish with stunning luxurious accommodation in Santorini.  We will be visiting local wineries, cooking with local chefs, enjoying shopping, restaurants, magical blue waters, cobblestone laneways, sun and a breathtaking sunset.

We hope that you return home inspired and rejuvenated.

private cooking classes

I love sharing my passion for cooking, and in particular all things Mediterranean.

I offer private cooking classes in the comfort of your own home for just yourself or a small group of friends.  It makes sense to be learning how to cook in your own kitchen as this is where you will be preparing meals: a home kitchen.  We will discuss your needs, what you would like to learn and for how many people you cook for, whether that is for one, two or more.

Classes run for 2-3 hours and in this time we will cook three dishes.

All classes are tailored for your individual needs whether you are a beginner or looking for some inspiration and ideas for weeknight family dinners or simply to expand your repertoire.

I will share tips and techniques and you will walk away feeling confident to reproduce the recipes adding your personal touch.

You will receive copies of the recipes that are cooked on the day.

Ingredients are not included however; you will receive a shopping list for the ingredients for you to purchase.

It is the responsibility of the participant to make sure all equipment is safe for use for the cooking class.

Following the class, I am always happy to answer questions and any concerns about the recipes; I am only an email away.

Contact me via email for any further details or questions you may have.
