About this trip

Generous hospitality is at the heart of Greek culture. Gathering around the table together for a delicious meal, the desire is for everyone to feel welcome and leave with unforgettable memories. 


My culinary Greek retreat introduces you to the people I know, to share in their knowledge and experience Greek cuisine firsthand. Designed as an intimate experience with just 10 people on each retreat, it’s a chance to immerse yourself in local culture and cookery. 


Of course, the best people to teach us are the ones that live here; they’re my partners in helping to uncover the real Corfu. From meeting local yiayias (grannies) with their secret, time-honoured recipes to visiting Vasiliki, the owner and cook of a local winery, we’ll explore the flavours and tastes of authentic Greek cuisine.


Imagine walking through a lush olive grove or preparing a greek recipe with local yiayias (grandmothers) to learn their secrets. Feel and taste the flavours of the freshest produce in a hands-on cooking class or sample locally caught seafood, fresh from the ocean.  As for our walking tour of Corfu Town, it’s the perfect marriage of history, inside knowledge and unique cuisine as we share some of the Old Town’s best-kept secrets and eating spots. 


Travel and food are a match made in heaven and this curated retreat of Greek cuisine is entirely arranged to make things simple for you. All you need do is come along, relax and enjoy the slow pace of life Corfu is renowned for.

Your Host

 I’m your host, Lynette. I became a resident on the island of Corfu after falling in love in a story that spans South Africa, London and Greece. But that’s one for another time. I’m looking forward to giving you the warmest welcome and sharing my love of Corfu with you. Having been immersed in Greek culture for a while now, I’m no stranger to picking olives, making wine or planting vegetables and I want to share my firsthand experience of everyday life so that you can enjoy it too. Greece is a constant source of inspiration to me and it’s my honor to make sure you get to experience authentic Greece and its most beautiful gems.
