Zagreb City & Cooking Class Tour helps you to discover Zagreb from outside – sightseeing, and inside – during culinary journey with a Chef. Usually, city tours provide only one part of destination mosaic (culture, history, architecture, art…).

Second part – Gastronomy, often stays sidelined. It’s a pity, food is a great storyteller, too. About people, tradition, way of life etc. Zagreb Cooking Class Tour is – a game changer!

Croatian cuisine is influenced a lot by Central Europe (e. g. Austria, Hungary). At the same time, Italian cooking art left ‘food print’, too. This is the secret of Croatian gastronomy – blend of different cuisines. With just spoon and fork you can taste best of two regions – Central Europe and Mediterranean.

After meet up @10am we will visit Dolac farmers’ market. Next, we’ll do Zagreb city walking tour, visiting most important landmarks of Zagreb (Cathedral, Stone Gate, St.Mark’s church, Lotrščak cannon tower). Witnessing cannon fire at noon, first part of the tour is done. You’re free until 5pm.

At 5pm taxi will pick you up in front of your hotel and drive to Chef’s comfy home. There, he will introduce you to Croatian cooking art (hands-on). Best comes at the end – ‘slow food’ dinner paired with top quality indigenous Croatian wines. After dinner, taxi will take you back to your hotel. Yeah!
