CULINARY CLASS - Peka In Imotski
Tasty Local Dishes, Wine & Centuries Old Culinary Traditions
So much more than just a cooking class this is an amazing day excursion where you will get to discover Imotski, sample the local wine, meet local champions and enjoy a traditional lunch on a hinterland Estate.
Hinterland Sights To See
Once we have picked you up in Split we head to Imotski, an old town that dates back to the 9th century. Imotski is located in the south of the Republic of Croatia, at the crossroads of Dalmatian Zagora and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Along the way you will have time to enjoy a short walk through the town centre and get to enjoy two natural phenomena of the area – Red and Blue Lakes. Ask your guide about the legends!
Local Wine Tasting
After exploring Imotski we will visit an authentic wine cellar and introduce you to the vintner, a wine enthusiast who having worked much of his life in Germany, returned to his home of Imotski and set up his own vineyard and cellars.
After a short tour of the cellars you will have time to enjoy conversation over a wine tasting along with traditional Dalmatian snacks.
Well worth the wait your host, on arrival at a local estate, will show you how to prepare one of the greatest dishes of Dalmatia – Peka.
Dalmatian peka is a cooking technique where you cook the food in the open fire oven under the bell (bell-shaped cast-iron lid covered with hot coals). With this way of cooking, ingredients cook slowly and leaves the dish full of flavor.
The experience and knowledge gained as well as the smells and tastes of cooking will be deeply etched in your memory.
This entire day is packed full of truly authentic experiences that everyone will remember for a long time.
