Watch a cooking demonstration and folkloric show as a complement to dining at the Touris Club, a unique property near the site of the original Olympic Games. In this serene and inspiring setting, you will watch a master chef prepare ultra-thin phyllo dough from scratch. The dough is typically used in classic Greek dishes such as cheese pie and spinach pie, both of which will be offered during lunch. All of the selections in the buffet will be homemade with locally sourced ingredients such as seasonal fruits and fresh vegetables. To make the experience even more memorable, costumed folkloric dancers will perform while you are dining. This region of Greece is also well-known for its wines, which will be served with lunch. While browsing the on-site shop, you will see a selection of wines from the nearby Mercouri Estate, a historic family-owned winery.
