Food is about life and life is about joy, even – or especially – in hard times. This is something the Greeks know all about, as we have abundantly seen in the film Zorba’s Dance.
Delectable Greek food is justifiably famous throughout most of the world, and it is all based on home cooking. You can be part of an exclusive event for six participants only. Early booking is recommended. Learn some of the basics of Greek cooking at the very source of the international cuisine: the homes of some great home chefs, some of the local taverna chefs, and your hosts at The Talking Table.
Every morning breakfast is served on our beautiful terrace overlooking the Aegean Sea. Then we go to a kitchen in the village to cook. We eat what we cook – either there in the taverna in whose kitchen we cooked, or in the evening on The Talking Table's terrace where a long-table meal is prepared by the guests alongside your hosts, putting new skills to practice.
There is plenty of free time to explore and enjoy the village, its shops and culture, its tavernas and hiking trails and beaches. It is springtime in Molyvos!
The Talking Table is a place on the beautiful port village of Molyvos on the Greek island of Lesbos where people learn, eat and talk together. Hosted by two ex-corporate South Africans, guests participating in various workshops are welcomed with warmth and generosity and given a safe environment for their creativity to flourish. Hearty long-table meals of mostly Greek food are served, while good conversation is always on the menu. A number of workshops are held in South Africa during the autumn.
The fee of €1 100 includes transfers to and from the ports*, breakfast and a long-table meal each day, course fee and art supplies. Accommodation and travel are excluded.
