ERASMUS+ KA1 course
Cypriot cuisine, which is based mainly on the characteristic qualities of the Mediterranean diet, is usually praised for its tasty, richly diverse and nutritious merits. 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. Thus, a variety of cooking classes is offered, in relation to the preparation of a range of distinctive traditional Cypriot recipes, both for main dishes and desserts.
Through this course, participants will have the opportunity to explore the basic ingredients and utensils used, as well as the cooking/culinary techniques applied to the Cypriot cuisine. Participants will also benefit from tasting the flavour richness of freshly cooked traditional dishes, which are considered specialties of the Cypriot gastronomy.
The course will be held in selected locations within the Nicosia and Paphos districts, and will be delivered by expert cooks, eager to share the secrets of the Cypriot cooking- style/manner. The cooking workshops will be supplemented by small excursions to nearby places of gastronomical interest, aiming at gaining a fuller image of the dominating Cypriot landscape.
