Information not currently available.
Approximately 4 Hours
Travel to the lovely whitewashed village of Pyrgos, set on one of the highest points on Santorini and offering magnificent views over the island's central plateau, windswept Oia, and lively Fira town. This is where you'll find Selene -- a favorite restaurant among in-the-know foodies and Food & Wine Magazine readers. The dramatic landscapes below enhance the restaurant's decidedly modern take on Santorini's local cuisine.
Begin with a tour of Selene's museum, opened by the restaurant's owners to showcase Santorini's prolific food-and-wine culture.
Then, your hands-on cooking class starts in the kitchen, with manager and sommelier Georgia Tsara teaching you how to prepare three traditional dishes. Your menu will include dorado (fish) sautéed with kakavia broth. When the work is done, it's time to relax and enjoy the creation of the day. This is an immersive way to experience and savor the true essence of Santorini.
