In Selene restaurant we have been offering cooking courses the last 10 years. We know that each one's interests and tastes vary, so this year we have the following choices available for you.
Please note that Selene Experience and the One-day cooking course(choice H1) are also available to download in PDF here.
Selene's aim, since 1986, has been the promotion of local products, Santorini and Cycladic cuisine. We have been trying to transmit this 'experience' to our guests through cooking classes, wine and food tastings and menu degustation. Selene has moved since last year to Pyrgos village and it now spreads in two venues, both located in the same complex as 'Drosos-Chrysos' folklore museum: a permanent exhibition where the visitors can become familiar with the traditional ways of the agricultural production in Santorini and the traditional way of living.
