From a deep place of passion and purpose Naxian Experiences was created.
Exclusive tailor-made experiences designed for adventurers, food lovers and good life seekers. Sharing the love of their island and all it has to offer is at the core of everything Naxian Experiences offer, a truly exciting journey around heavenly Naxos.
One of a kind: The very special Organic Wood-fire cooking class is a highlight! Taking place at the farm where Anthony Bourdain filmed for Parts Unknown, Mrs Juliana will charm you with her love for cooking and sharing her delicious traditional Greek dishes all prepared on the wood-fire stove & wood-fire oven. The farm dates back to the 16th century, there is no electricity, just the sounds of nature and fabulous views to the nearby mountains.
The experience starts with picking some seasonal goods from the organic garden, then you will be guided by Mrs Juliana in the preparation of four Greek recipes. Learn how to delicately prepare the vegetables for Gemista (stuffed vegetables) and the secret ingredient that gives this dish so much flavour, grate the zucchini for the mouth-watering Zucchini Fritters, fry the Saganaki on the wood-fire stove, roll the perfect little Keftadakia (meatballs). Other dishes include local Naxian Lamb and Potatoes and our most favorite Greek dessert, Loukoumades (Greek donuts). The menu can be adapted according to dietary requirements with vegetarian and fish options.
Take a stroll after lunch around the magnificent property filled with fruit trees, ancient olive trees and beehives. With lovely Greek tunes playing in the background, genuine heart-warming hospitality and the best food we have eaten in Naxos, this experience is so special. You will savour every moment.
