Cooking Class and Market Visit
Guests from abroad are picked up at 9:30 a.m. from their hotels or at the cruise-ship port for a welcoming tea with your host and your culinary guide.
We drive to the farmers’ market to shop for the ingredients of your lunch, which will be comprised of three cold starters, one warm entrée and a main course. At the market you will encounter local food purveyors who offer all manner of self-harvested olives, wild seasonal greens, vegetables, as well as home-made noodles, jams, pickles, breads and a delicious array of cheeses.
From the market we will drive you the short distance to Ortakent.
At the heart of this village, at the juncture of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding mountains, is Erenler Sofrasi, an oasis of civility and fine taste.
Here we will guide you through the delicious secrets of regional Aegean cookery with its accent on olive oil and fresh herbs, a very special and particularly healthy branch of Turkish cuisine. You will be invited to watch the cooking sessions while sipping a glass of wine, or join-in for a hands-on experience if you’d rather. Either way, we guarantee you we will be entertained and with the help of the written recipes we will offer you, be able to recreate the feast back at home.
We will serve you a lunch of all the wonderful dishes we have cooked at tables that look out at the Aegean, the most mythological of all seas.
At 2:30 p.m. we will drive you back to your chosen location in Bodrum, giving you ample time to visit the charming town and its phantasy-laden Crusaders’ Castle with its world-famous Underwater Museum.
* This event can be arranged only on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays when different area markets operate.
