GASTRO-ETHNIC ISLAND TOUR
This excursion is all about the western part of Korčula Island.
Let’s set off towards Blato, a settlement which is closely connected to the land, knows how to organise its affairs, and stays in the black, and always keeps its chin up. In Blato, we’ll visit the Barilo family, and get to know how people used to live on the island, thanks to their rich collection of household implements and accessories. We’ll taste some home-made products, and learn how to make “bruštulani mindeli”.
Not included: insurance policy
Home-made products you’ll want
to take home
Then we’ll take you to the oldest and the youngest settlement on the island – Vela Luka. There we’ll visit the Surjan family and taste Korčula’s olive oil. How about some tea made with olive leaves? And how does this sound – salted fish with rock samphire? We’ll have a home-made snack watching a video presentation of the olive harvest and the production of olive oil.
Our discovery of the western part of the island continues with Prigradica from where many men from Blato left the island at the beginning of the 20th century. In Smokvica, we’ll taste Pošip wine, and then we’ll descend to Kneže. Please prepare your camera. The cherry on the cake – the return to Korčula by boat. Because there is no island without the sea…
