This was a fun cooking class. I learned a lot about the Greek style of food preparation from the delightful host of the event, Maria. She distributed recipes of the items we prepared afterwards so that we can make the dishes at home. She is very knowledgeable about the interactions of the ingredients and the effect of the cooking process on the recipes and articulates all of that in a fun and engaging manner. The best part - though you are strangers when you walk in, she makes all those present feel as part of a big Greek family relaxing and making food together.
What a fun and lively evening! Maria is a gem, sharing her philosophy on everything from food to family, from shopping to chopping. The evening ran a bit longer than scheduled, but no one seemed to mind, and our dinner was delicious, if I do say so myself!
We absolutely loved this experience with Maria. The lesson was great, we learned so much about Greek food, its' origins, customs, and preparation. Maria works hard to make sure everyone is comfortable and has a good time. I will be making several of the dishes she taught us and hope to come back to learn more. Thank you Maria...Mary and Brill from Texas
A wonderful evening with Maria and a fun group from around the globe. Maria greated each of us; asked that we tell her about our cooking at home throughout the evening. She involved everyone in the preparation of dishes and in fact added extra dishes to her plan because everyone was so enthusiastic. She was enjoying it all as much as we were. We sat down to dinner with more food than we could possibly eat even if we hadn't been nibbling and sipping during preparations. Nothing difficult in preparations, focus on Greek taste and presentation. YUM!!
Loved the cooking class. Maria was excellent and very informative. I would recommend it to anyone.
Our hostess and cooking instructor Maria was awesome!! She welcomed us with some Raki and gave us all a brief history on Greek cooking. It was fun to particpate in making the dishes that we would eat. Everything was delicious. Maria made you feel like going home and make the food for family and friends. I would highly recommend this cooking class.
I got lucky and had a very fun group for my cooking class. The awesome Maria taught us the basics of Greek cuisine. Everything was so delicious! She cooks just like mama. And there are some hands on duties which are simple enough for a novice like me. My favorite evening in Greece.
This cooking class was amazing! Maria is the best! She treats you well, teaches you about the food and culture, and feeds you until you can't eat anymore. You learn so many recipes and have fun making them.
Maria was excellent! I have yet to receive the copies of the recipes though.
Maria was a terrific host and great and friendly leader for this tour. Fun, relaxed atmosphere at her restaurant made this tour something fun and unusual for my trip and the food was wonderful (dont eat that entire day as Maria's hospitality is extraordinary and you will be stuffed full of excellent food!!). Well worth the price - great value and a really fun night. Thanks Maria!
This class was awesome, we leaned how to cook so many different Greek dishes, we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and nice. I will most defentily be putting my new found cooking skills to good use.
Lovely restaurant, very friendly people, some tasty food. Very pleasant experience.
Great class... great information...good hands on experience and very good explanations... cooking is a hobby...but I really benefited from this class... great location... superb dinner followed the class that we prepared....it was simply great !!!!.... the only recommendation (and somewhat of a disappointment) - is that there were no recipes provided to us which is typical for all the different classes I have taken. They mentioned it would be emailed to me...but 4 weeks have gone by and nothing yet :) ...otherwise.. for the cost... HIGHLY RECOMMEND....
