One of the things Cyprus is usually praised for is its tasty, richly diverse and nutritious cuisine with the characteristic qualities of the Mediterranean diet, which is considered as one of the healthiest in the world. This course, organised by the Cyprus Food and Nutrition Museum, aims at familiarizing foreigners with the rich gastronomy and the culinary tradition of Cyprus through a hands-on experience. The cooking classes cover a range of characteristic traditional Cypriot recipes, both for main dishes and desserts. Participants have the opportunity to explore basic ingredients, cooking techniques and utensils, and of course taste the rich flavours of freshly cooked traditional dishes, which are considered specialties of the Cypriot gastronomy. The course is held in selected locations of the Nicosia and Paphos districts, and is taught by expert cooks, eager to share the secrets of Cypriot style cooking. Apart from cooking workshops, the course includes small excursions to nearby places of gastronomical interest.
