We had the morning course...
, Sep 2021
We had the morning course with green market tour which was really fun. On top of that we got mini walking tour in the old city on the way to the fish market. At the academy we had snacks waiting for us and got lesson about the fish we were about to cook. After that it was cooking time (with drinks). So much fun, so much food and we had great group (7). The teachers were both great. Highly recommend this to anyone who likes cooking and food.
I would do it again!

Drago was such an amazing host and teacher. My favorite part of the trip was picking our ingredients in the market for our meal. I really enjoyed learning the dishes and having all around fun in the kitchen laughing and cooking. He really represents this school well and I have a new love for Croatian people.
A wonderful road less traveled

My wife and I always love unique experiences. Especially non touristy ones that help you get to have a better understanding of the culture. This experince was everything we could have imagined and hoped for. Loving to cook and being away from home for a week, being back in the kitchen was a lovely feeling. Drago, our chef, was knowledgeable, personable, and great at helping us walk through all the steps of prepping the meal. The walking tour of the markets included some history and such of the town which was an added bonus. We lucked out and it ended up just being my wife and I so we really got a chance to discuss culture and cooking with Drago. Such a delightful and unique experience. If you enjoy cooking and great food, and want something not pushed on you on a pier like another pirate ship crusie.... Check this experince out!

Thank you Derek, chef Drago has enjoyed sharing his knowledge, skills and culinary enthusiasm with you! You did a great job, and the result was delicious food :) We hope you will keep the memories and use the recipes as often as possible, it will make flavours of Dalmatia kept with you - even back home.
Absolutely phenomenal and professional!

Absolutely phenomenal!! A cooking class with a true Master Chef. A really professional set up in a proper cooking academy. I could not believe the amount we learnt about fresh produce and the skills we picked up from baking bread to cleaning fish, to making a sauce base and desserts. It all looked and tasted amazing. Could not recommend more!

Thank you Kristy, we are happy that you have explored traditional and delicious food of Dalmatia and even learned how to repeat recipes at your home! And we have learned that even a Swiss chard with potatoes and garlic could bring so much fun :) Wish you even more great time spend cooking!!! Dobar tek!
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class

We enjoyed our class so much! We had a small group, since we attended off-season. Our guide directed us in creating a wonderful set of dishes, which we were each fully involved in creating. The whole experience was great, and highly recommended.
Very enjoyable day
, Aug 2019
Myself and my two daughters enjoyed this day very much. Met at the market and were told all about how the fruit and veg and fish markets are run and some of Split”s history. The cookery school was air conditioned with top class facilities. Chef was a very good teacher explaining everything and helping. Our menu was fish based but he was very careful to check beforehand that we were all happy with eating fish. Learnt a lot and also learnt more about Croatia whilst eating our lunch. Would highly recommend this experience. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere though you are expected to do the cooking.

Amazing day full of fun and learning!
, Aug 2019
I had read all of the prior reviews before booking my trip so my expectations were high and the Split Cooking Class completely lived up to and exceeded every expectation that I had! Chef was amazing in explaining things both in the markets and in the kitchen an clearly has a passion for what he does! I was able to do some many things that I would never have done on my own such as try eating stingray, which is actually super good and I learned to filet a fish and bake bread. However, even if you already know how to do all of these things, there is still a lot you can get out of this class. It was a lovely and relaxing day full of eating, drinking, cooking, and good conversation. You definitely do not want to plan a lot of other things during the day so that you can take the time to fully enjoy this experience. I couldn't recommend this class more!

This was a great class. It was fun from the minute we went to the markets for our ingredients til we ate our delicious meal. The chef told interesting stories as he guided us through preparing various seafood dishes, breads and desserts.

Best Memory or Split!
, Jun 2019
Chef Zeljko was fantastic! Such a talented chef and a wonderful, patient teacher. We walked through the green market and the fish market to purchase ingredients for our meal. We learned a lot from the start. Once we were at the academy we had a wonderful snack and drink and then off to work. There were 7 of us in our group and we all participated in several dishes and the end meal was huge and every part of it was delicious. I definitely learned things to take home and use in my own kitchen. This is well worth the time and such a great way to immerse yourself in the culture.
