TROODOS TROUT MASTER CLASS
Presented By Secret Valley School of Gastronomy
Secret Valley Golf Restaurant Kouklia, Paphos, Cyprus
10.00 – 12.00 Wednesday March, 28, 2018
The Secret Valley School of Gastronomy, from February 2018, presents a series of specialist Culinary & Wine Master Classes, open to local guests and International visitors, and separate to the Gastronomy School’s monthly local loyal Members’ Group event. Worldwide specialist chefs and wine experts will be invited to present and share their culinary/connoisseur expertise during the Master Classes.
The trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) of Troodos is a fresh-water cultivation, produced in hatcheries on the Troodos mountains range.
History: Since 1960, because of the infertility of the soil of the mountainous area of Troodos, people in many surrounding villages began to utilise the rivers and dams that existed in the area. This led to the development of trout cultivation. Since 1971, villages like Kakopetria, Platres and Foini, have become a destination both for locals and tourists for the consumption/purchase of the trout.
Production method: Trout production is carried out in reservoirs with spring water from the Troodos region. Its production, directly related to climatic conditions (especially temperature and rainfall), is carried out throughout the year.
The informal, but informative, event programme, set amidst beautiful landscape surroundings of the golf course venue, will comprise of a workshop culinary demonstration of a variety of ways to prepare Troodos Trout performed by the Master Chef, after, enjoy a tasting of the succulent Troodos Trout with a glass of fine wine selected by a Sommelier to enhance the flavours.
The course aims to provide knowledge to the keen and interested cook, sharing traditional methods and ideas on one of Cyprus’ most sought-after regional fish delicacies. Questions to the Chef, and hands-on participation, are encouraged.
The course will be conducted primarily in English, with Greek speaking available.
Prior reservations essential no later than 5 days prior: 23rd March 2018 due to seasonal Trout order placement.

Margaret Anderson - "Thanks so much for organising this event. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The morning coffee, meeting new people with the same interest was good. Master Chef George Halkides of Secret Valley School of Gastronomy did a wonderful job telling us about marinades and smoking methods before smoking the meats. Chef Gary McEvoy then went on to give us lots of useful information and tips about smoking. A lot of this was new to me. He did a great presentation. Then we had the tasting! Some of the participants were surprised as Chef George had also added very nice crushed potatoes in addition to the meat and pre-grilled vegetables he had smoked, so we had a very nice lunch! The venue is super. The hospitality was great. Thanks so much for today!”
