As one of the first agencies specialising in organised private culinary tours and gourmet activities, CorfuTrips.com are proud to be offering this unique tour.
The tour is ideal for foodies and food professionals who wish to experience the authentic taste of Corfu. Corfiot cuisine is considered to be an eclectic mix of traditional Greek and Italian dishes. Some influences from the French and British rule still remain, just don't expect to find fish and chips or sauces with double cream! Corfiots pride themselves on having the best tasting fish from the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean, therefore fresh fish and sea food are highly recommended. Bourdetto is one of the most traditional local fish dishes, but it is really only enjoyed by those who like their fish in a spicy red sauce.
Imagine the smell of sun ripened tomatoes, the distinct aroma of dried oregano or sweet, juicy peaches just picked from the trees. This is just beginning of the tour, where your guide will take you through the local market in Corfu Town. There you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits and of course the freshest fish and sea food. Anyone with the slightest interest in food will love the experience of the local Corfiot market.
Your guide will introduce you to the local cuisine and the most traditional dishes of Corfu. You will be asked to choose what meals you would like to try and based on your choice the guide will then give you the exact list of ingredients that you need to buy at the market. However, feel free to challenge our Chef by picking some strange combinations of ingredients! You will love the display of vegetables, picked earlier that morning and the fresh fish, lobsters, prawns and sea food from the cleanest waters of the Ionian Sea. Don't forget to buy some local olives and olive oil to take home with you as this will add to your gourmet experience and your memory of it.
Once you have finished shopping at the market, you will be driven to a restaurant. Upon arrival, the Chef and the Manager will welcome you and give you a short introductory lesson into Greek cookery. They will demonstrate how to prepare tzatziki dip, a Greek horiatiki salad and local refreshing drink.
This is a unique, full day private, guided tour, giving you the opportunity to experience the greatest part of Corfiot culture and lifestyle through shopping, cooking, eating and, of course, talking about food. Irrespective of culinary experience, the taste of Corfu should not be missed!
