Culinary Secrets in Pelion with Karaiskos Farm
The Karaiskos farm, situated at the 2nd kilometer of the provincial road between Portaria and Zagora, is a haven for those seeking a genuine agritourism experience. Established in 2016, the farm has been dedicated to promoting the rich culinary traditions of Greece and Pelion through interactive cooking lessons.
Our cooking courses are designed to immerse visitors in a hands-on culinary experience, fostering not only their entertainment but also providing valuable insights into the cultural tapestry of the region and the broader country. Additionally, we strive to raise awareness about environmental issues and sustainability.
Certified by the Ministry of Tourism for agritourism, the Karaiskos farm offers a range of facilities to enhance your stay. These include the farmhouse, providing comfortable accommodation for farm guests, an organic vegetable garden, a restaurant, and a café. Together, these elements create a comprehensive agritourism experience, inviting guests to connect with the land, savor local flavors, and gain a deeper understanding of sustainable living.
Our courses, conducted in either Greek or English by a local chef, offer a delightful and immersive experience lasting approximately three hours. The course is thoughtfully structured into three distinct phases to ensure a well-rounded and engaging culinary adventure.
To kick off, participants are warmly welcomed and taken on a guided tour, introducing them to the charm of the farm. This includes a visit to our organic vegetable garden, where guests have the opportunity to gather the fresh, seasonal ingredients needed for their culinary creations. A visit to the farm animals adds an extra touch of authenticity to the experience.
Moving on to the heart of the course, the second phase involves hands-on participation in the preparation of a delightful meal. Our guests actively engage in crafting three delectable dishes under the expert guidance of our local chef.
The culmination of the experience takes place in the final phase, where the table is set, creating a convivial atmosphere for participants to savor the fruits of their labor. Here, they enjoy the delicious dishes they’ve prepared themselves, adding a unique and satisfying dimension to their culinary journey.
We understand the importance of accommodating dietary preferences, and as such, we are happy to make small modifications to the proposed menus to cater to the specific needs of our participants. Our goal is to ensure that everyone can fully enjoy and personalize their culinary adventure at the Karaiskos farm.
Choose between two enchanting activities, immersing yourself in an experience of taste and nature like never before.
