Every year, Mèlisses opens its doors to host exclusive gatherings and retreats. Our culinary host and workshop manager Allegra Pomilio has been working in the field for many years. She assisted and worked with the French food blogger Mimi Thorisson, hosting many workshops together and honed her skills studying at the Alain Ducasse Academy, as well as attending many prestigious Italian chef’s classes. She’s always looking for the best way to combine simply cooked homemade food served with beautifully displayed ingredients, paying a particular attention to the presentation of the dishes and to the “art de la table” all accompanied by the best wines and refreshments.Living between Italy and Greece; her passion for food, travelling and lifestyle found perfect balance at Mèlisses, where she hosts, together with other guest personalities, intimate retreats and workshops aiming to discover the island of Andros, each time under a different perspective. Make sure not to miss our very special retreats! Each meal will take the form of an outdoor feast, savouring Mediterranean flavours and atmosphere.
