The Cookery School

Cookery School & Resturant

Paramytha, Limassol

 

Having been to several of Tracey’s cookery classes and achieved cooking miracles (well by my normal standards anyway) I thought it was high time I sat down and enjoyed Tracey (and her students) cooking for me instead!

Tracey and her entrepreneurial cookery school is itself a stunning place to visit, being based in a beautiful old Inn (‘To Hani’ in Greek), located 10 minutes drive up the mountain overlooking Limassol. You’ll love the ambience of the traditional building steeped in history. There are interestingly also Bed and Breakfast rooms to rent.

The Cookery School restaurant is open for Sunday Lunch and Wednesday evening dinners. Booking is essential, you can view the menus in advance on their social media pages or website. They also have a reasonably priced bar which is open with the restaurant.

There is plenty of parking outside the front of the building. Whilst the parking area is private it is unsecured i.e. there is no security or gates.

Location – The Cookery School is in Paramytha, 10 minutes drive uphill from the Ayia Filaxi roundabout on the highway in Limassol.

Food – One of the interesting things about the Cookery School restaurant is that you eat what Tracey decides to cook (so make sure you tell her in advance if you have food intolerances or are vegetarian!) and I was not disappointed by the food on this particular Sunday.  Tracey served a delicious bowl of minted pea soup with home baked bread (still warm from the oven), roast pork with crackling, sage and onion stuffing, caramelized carrots, roast potatoes, green beans with red onion and bacon, and the lightest Yorkshire puddings (of course I am a vegetarian so Tracey made me a stuffed portabello mushroom to replace the pork), rounded off by a light, but decadent, orange roulade filled with cream and strawberries with a rich dark chocolate sauce. Yum.

Would I return?

Absolutely, I actually moved in for 3 years!

Suitable for:

Families, couples, friends, solo, groups, business (team building).

Best time to visit:

It’s open all year round, but the evenings in summer when you can sit and eat outside is the best in my opinion.

Price range:

$$ – 3 course lunch was a set €20 for the food when I visited.
