What You Can Expect
Make your own way to the start point in Athens’ Monastiraki district, and then walk to a beloved local eatery with your host. Head inside to meet your chef, and start the lesson with a glass of raki (twice-distilled Greek spirit) while chatting with other food-lovers in your group.
With your chef at your side to show you how traditional Greek cooking is done, prepare and cook an authentic meal consisting of four starters and one main course, using fresh herbs and spices. Dishes vary each class, but typical specialties that you may make include melitazanopitakia (eggplant pies), roasted lamb, tzatziki and Greek salad.
At the end of the class, sit down with your group to enjoy the highlight of your evening: eating the feast that you’ve created with your own hands! Relax with wine and chat about cooking tips and Greek cuisine with your group.
This class was nothing short of amazing and Mary, our host, was an absolute delight. The location, in a small bustling taverna, with a small group so that everyone could participate was fantastic. I did the class with my step-daughter and we learnt an amazing amount of information, got to practice making some of our favourites dishes and then - best of all - taste them! A word of warning, do not eat anything before you go - the amount of food you make and then sit down to share is phenomenal! A true highlight of our trip.
This class is highly recommended and influenced my eating habits for the duration of my time in Greece. Everything was well laid out and prepared. You participated as much as you were comfortable with. I felt like I was having a family dinner by the end. Maria is so cute and funny. The tour was easy to find as you met the guide straight off the metro.
