Experiential Activities

In ΑΜAΝΙΤΑ, we offer you experiential activities, which will give you the opportunity to become familiar with the local gastronomy and its strong link to foraging and the cultivation of aromatic herbs, greens and vegetables in small gardens. Our programs are:

Cooking lessons: Hands-on Cooking class on “Poor People’s Kitchen” of Pelion.

Days: every Tuesday and Thursday from April 18 to September 30

Time: from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Duration: 3,5 hours

Participants: from 2 to 8 persons

Description: Our guests will visit the herb garden and the organic garden of Amanita Guesthouse and collect the ingredients for the dishes we will prepare. We will then enter the kitchen, where our guests will receive a small lecture about the basic principles of the Pelion region gastronomy, which is mainly based on wild and cultivated herbs, greens and vegetables. With our guidance and assistance the participants will prepare two local dishes, among those recorded in Filareto’s cookery book “The culinary curiosity of a hotelier”. While preparing the meal, we will have a glass of tsipouro (the local spirit). After cooking we will all together enjoy our creations with local organic wine, chatting and stories.

The dinner includes appetizers, salad, local cheese, home-made bread and two courses cooked by the participants. As a dessert we will serve spoon sweets for which the area is famous. The first and main courses depend on the season and the production of our garden.
