Every day except Sundays at 10 30 a.m. we welcome you at Selene Restaurant with fresh juice, coffee and traditional Greek cookies. Georgia Tsara gives an introductory lecture to the cuisine of the Cycladic Islands and particularly of Santorini, as well as, to the unique local products of our island.
The volcanic eruption that took place in the island of Santorini almost 3500 years ago left the dramatic caldera that you see today. With more than 300 days of sunshine and its rich volcanic soil, the island yields a bounty of unusual indigenous herbs and vegetables. White eggplant, capers and caper leaves, fava (small yellow peas), exquisite baby tomatoes – all grown virtually without water. Each day is dedicated to thematic cooking classes.
