What you'll do

Our day will start south of Dubrovnik, with a visit to the Konavle valley, our finest wine region, where our local family lives. Upon our arrival, you will be welcomed with some tea and coffee, before our master chef gets the outdoor kitchen ready for our experience. Today, you will be the local, making lunch for our "family" - yourselves.

With fresh vegetables, homemade olive oil and some love, we can't go wrong with our meal. The traditional lunch for Konavle valley, but rest of Dalmatia as well, which we will be preparing with the supervision of the father of the family, the grand chef, is the famous traditional peka meal. All of our ingredients have been carefully picked and prepared for our cooking class, straight to the table.

Peka meal is a blend of vegetables and meat drizzled with olive oil, sprinkled with herbs, and then baked to perfection under a bell-like dome. Rest assured that our meal will turn out perfectly every single time.

As we are waiting for the magic to happen, we walk downstairs to our wine bar to taste some of the finest wines Konavle can offer along with some cheese and prosciutto. With our bellies full and a new recipe to try back home, we depart for Dubrovnik.

16:00 transfer from Dubrovnik
