Try out new favors – Food in Greece
Just a moment, why would I bother write about something that obvious? Of course, visiting a foreign country means that you get introduced to new flavors. But, let’s think a little bit outside of the box. Could the ingredients that we already know, be different in Greece? Could the tomato have different taste here that the one that you’re using back home? The answer is YES! The soil and some other factors (like altitude etc.) are really important for the taste of the final product. So, joining a cooking class will let you reveal the magic that is hidden behind each plate. Prepare your own meal and try out each ingredient individually. This way you will understand why Greek salad (which is an extremely simple salad) is so famous all around the world and it cannot easily be copied by using ingredients that are not from Greece.

Learn some new cooking techniques
Every country has some “hidden” techniques that you can only reveal by attending into a cooking class. For example, countries with desserts, like Morocco or Jordan, use the sand as a container for the food, in order to slow cook it and prepare their traditional dish. Take a look at a common Greek method of cooking is on the spit. This method is piercing foods, usually meat, with a pole and rotating it over fire. Observe the clay oven in action and taste the difference between cooking into a regular oven. Cook using a clay pot for some specialty dishes. Learn why you keep seeing pictures of octopuses that Greeks leave outside to dry in the sun.

Remember that traveling is about more than just seeing new locations. You might run into people who aren’t from your home nation while you’re traveling. It can be natives or tourists. You can open up your mind by meeting people who reside abroad. You can view and engage with a way of life that is distinct from your own. If something seems weird to you, it might seem regular to them. By sharing ideas and developing connections with others who hold various beliefs or perspectives on life, you will be able to develop your personality. This will add to the uniqueness of your travel experience, and when you get home, you’ll have some incredible souvenirs from your cooking session as a bonus!
