After guests begun asking questions and recipes about the tasty food that our cook Nona every evening with much love and dedication prepares, it was time to start the famous cooking class! In the morning, we go to the local market to buy the ingredients for the dinner that night. At the market we find all kinds of herbs, spices and vegetables we need for the cooking. Everything is tastefully stacked in little bowls. In the afternoon we start with the preparations of the food. This means lots of chopping and graining. Then the cooking begins. At dinner we will enjoy the results with all the guests together!
