Come to share the passion and joy of baking during a personalized bakery experience! You and your friends, family, or colleagues can learn to make sourdough bread (and your starter), traditional Greek pies, and tasty savory treats with the artisan baker of Zitsa. Depending on the day and time of your experience, you will have the opportunity to learn personal recipes and master techniques for a wide variety of our handmade baked goods, from our renowned sourdough bread created with our starter to traditional Greek cookies and pitas.
The baker will take you through the baking process from the very beginning – choosing the right high-quality ingredients – all the way through to tasting the finished products. You will learn why certain ingredients are added at specific times, how water and air temperature affect the outcome, and why we make certain loaves of bread or cookies for specific Greek holidays and traditions.
After the lesson, the baker will host you for a late lunch at their farmhouse, in which you will partake in the lovely goodies you have made, plus some local cheeses, wine, and other classic village dishes.
