You will explore the market, place that was during the past the center of religious life of Zadar, quite extrordinary, isn`t it?! Every day hard working people from the countryside and nearby islands bring their fresh products early in the dawn on the market. Here, the area of the market is not just a place where people buy and sell goods, it is a common area where everyone mingles and meets the old friends. Along with your guide you will choose the ingredients for the lunch or supper, there are so many choices here in Zadar: fresh fish and other sea food, varieties of fruits and vegetables, hard and soft cheeses, honey from the Velebit Mountain, fresh eggs, Dalmatian smoked ham, grappas, liqueurs, wine… The menu is up to you, the guide and the chef are always there to give you some tips about the traditional local meals. You will also get the chance to taste the products before the final decision. After shopping follows your cooking class !

AMAZING DAY WITH MY FAMILY!
Feb 2020
This was a very interesting and not an ordinary tour.
We went as a couple with kids, and had a great time cooking and preparing with the chef.
Our kids also wanted to cook, and it was a really nice family time for us.
The food in the end was so good - nothing left :)
Thank you for everything!!

Good time and good food
Sep 2019
My wife and I signed up for this and we’re glad we did. We met at the café and the class for the day was just us and another couple. After a drink we went to the market, first for the vegetables and then the fish. The market is a great place to visit even if not taken this class. The helper picked up the veggies and then in the fish market asked what we wanted to have. I wanted to have one large whole fish but I chose sardines instead. In addition mussels, sea bass, and calamari were purchased.

The kitchen was spotless with well supplied individual workstations. When we arrived we started prep work which included cleaning the fish and squid. I had never cleaned either so I wanted to get my hands dirty and that I accomplished by helping to clean the sardines and squid.

It was at this point that I was a little disappointed as the chef took over from there and none of us were involved with actual cooking. This may be the result of the fact that the chef did not speak English very well or the actual cooking of the fish was going to be by baking except for some some pre-cooking of the sardines/squid and the cooking of the mussels. In any case I watched the chef closely to pick up any techniques I could use at home.

During the session we were served wine and enjoyed each others company. The mussels were served first and were wonderful. After only 10 minutes in the oven the fish was ready and it was served with blitva. There was more than enough food and everything was great. There were questions about whether to remove bones from the sardines as they were larger than what we are used to in the US (about 6") and we were told they eat the whole thing, head and all. I eat my fill and they were delicious.

Although we were not involved in the actual cooking itself, I still learned things and for the money it was an excellent experience over about 4 hours and we absolutely enjoyed the staff, the people and the food.

Outstanding
Dear Nada,

Thank you so much for this super cooking course, you and your colleague have done an amazing job!
We started with a nice coffee at cafe louvre to get to know each other. Then we take the short walk around the market to buy the vegetables and eggs, followed by the visit of the fish market (lots of different fishes, squids and other sea food)
Also the small guided tour through the old zadar town was very nice, we enjoyed your style of telling the stories around.
Around eleven o'clock we went to the cooking class.
To be honest we wasn't sure which kind of kitchen we will find, but this brand new kitchen studio looks and feels like somekind of cooking set for a tv show. (Just perfect!)
The professional chef showed us each step of the preparing and cooking. We started by preparing the squids, a nice and for us new experience. Followed by shopping of the vegetables and squids heads, we filled the squids and then we pack it with the vegetables into the oven, compred by lots of olive oil, white wine and salt/Pepper.
I will stop here telling the whole process, you have to do it by your own.

Also we have to say the dessert was a bomb, you have to try that. Super simple and very tasty :)

Overall, that cooking class is one of the Highlights from our croatia trip 2018.
When you have the chance, do it. You won't regret that.

Hvala!
Carmela and Patrick
