The family farm is located in Kallithea (about 15klm from Zakynthos town). The owners welcome anyone who wishes to experience the traditional way of living on a Zakynthian farm. You will have the chance to cook with them and then taste the food.
The Zakynthian family gives you a tour on the farm. You will see the vine yards, the procedure of wine production and the feeding of the domestic animals. You can buy home made products: olive oil, wine, raisins, “pasteli” (traditional sweet), soap, body oils, paintings and pottery. You may also taste wine, olive oil or raisins before your choice.
Next, you go to your ' classroom', an especially constructed outdoor room where the cookery lessons take place. All the ingredients provided, are fresh, produced at the farm. You can choose the food you will cook. You can select a vegetarian recipe (stuffed vegetables, eggplants “skordostoupi”, cheese pie, courgettes balls, tzatziki and “dakos”) or meat (stiffado, rabbit, meat in red sauce). You will also learn to make "glaounes" a traditional sweet with raisins, cinnamon, honey and orange.
The cooking lasts about 2-2.5 hours and when the food is ready it is served and you can taste your dish. You take with you the recipe in order to cook the dishes again!
