Pelegrini restaurant cooking class

Cooking magic with one of region's best chefs!

Start at colourful stalls in the local market, and walking through Šibenik’s romantic historic centre arrive to the kitchen of Des Jeunes Restaurateurs d’Europe member restaurant. Rudi Štefan, the chef and the owner of Pelegrini's, takes you on an inspiring journey for all the senses. Explore authentic Dalmatian flavours whilst learning how to add a contemporary twist to them, something that Rudi is internationally renowned for!

Chef Rudi will first take you shopping for fresh produce in the traditional Šibenik open market, a vibrant centre of everyday living in Dalmatia. Walk back to the Renaissance palace of the famed Pelegrini restaurant to roll up your sleeves, watch, learn and cook! Your culinary adventure will definitely start with making your own bread, but the rest depends on Chef’s inspiration, your preferences and fresh treasures found in the market. Mussels with leeks, smoked bacon and cider, sea-bass fillet with honey roasted Dalmatian truffles and goat cheese sauce, or - something else. Menu at Pelegrini's can be as complex as you wish, as Rudi worked with some of the world's greatest chefs.

Pelegrini is also famed for their wine cellar selection, so rest assured that whatever you prepare will be accompanied by some fine local wines selected by Rudi as the best match for your dish. Bon appetite!
