ENO-GASTRO ISLAND TOUR
On A Plate
This is a culinary tour comprising a hands-on cooking class, a homely lunch, great wine tasting and a lot of fun.
You’ll learn how to prepare a traditional type of pasta – the Žrnovo macaronis. This is a delicious meal typically served with a beef sauce. You first chop the dough into small pieces and then wrap them around a wooden stick rolling a macaroni. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but if you try, you’ll be proud of yourself and you won’t be able to stop laughing!

Today you cook, and we eat
This tour starts in a minivan – we’ll be transferred to the village of Žrnovo, close to Korčula Town. Soon the view opens up over the blue channel between the mainland and the island. You’ll be asking for a photo break before you can even get into your stride.
Žrnovo, spread out on several hills, consists of four hamlets which are organised around cultivation plots. We’ll walk along the stone-paved, stepped alleyways squeezed between old stone houses. You’ll learn the history of the village, and you’ll find out where the locals hang out.
And now, a cooking class on how to prepare the Žrnovo macaronis is on the agenda! First, a short demonstration of how to shape the macaronis, then it’s time to put your apron on! After this hands-on cooking class, you’ll have your lunch, by which we mean, the one you have just cooked!
A grape without vowels
Yes, we know, you will not want to leave the table. But, there’s more – Grk wine tasting in Lumbarda. Lumbarda is a pleasant hamlet at the easternmost tip of the island. It’s well known for its sandy beaches, and its unpronounceable grape variety Grk. The Grk grape grows in the reddish sandy soil, tending to accumulate high sugar content while maintaining excellent acidity. Warning, Grk wine gives you wings!
After lunch, we’ll be transferred to Lumbarda to toast our culinary victory with one of our renowned wine producers. Full of joy, you’ll return to Korčula Town where our excursion will end.
