Enjoy an authentic taste of Cyprus by sampling regional products, wines made with indigenous grapes and dishes that reflect the Mediterranean climate. In the village of Angogyra, you will gain insight into how caffeine-free carob pods are ground into flour and substituted for chocolate in recipes. Carob is also used in a sweet toffee that you will watch being made. To gain an understanding of Cypriot wine, you will tour two vineyards that make the most of their terroirs. The Lambouri Winery’s grapes grow on the southern slopes of the Troodos Mountains and that high elevation gives the grapes a distinct taste that you will recognize during a sampling. Another glimpse into Cypriot gastronomy awaits you at the Apsiou Tavern, where the chef will demonstrate how to prepare dishes such as koupepia. Feel free to join in and help to stuff the vine leaves with locally sourced ingredients such as minced pork, tomatoes and rice. Lunch follows.

• See the importance of carob in local recipes as a substitute for chocolate.
• Sample carob toffee, yoghurt with carob drizzle and several wines at two vineyards.
• Help a chef prepare a local dish before dining on a traditional meze lunch.
