Greek Cooking Class in an Athens Tavern

Small-Group Athens Cooking Class

Based on colorful foods from both land and sea, the Greek diet is a perfect example of Mediterranean cuisine. On this small-group cooking class, dive right into the Greek food world, and learn about heartwarming stews, fresh shellfish and classic flavorings such as lemon, cinnamon and oregano.

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.

What a fun and interactive evening. We learning much more than just the food we were cooking but about some history of food. WHere it came from and how it influenced Greek cooking and eating. There is so much food at the end that you get to take some home with you for lunch tomorrow. I highly recommend this experience to anyone but especially one who considers themselves a foodie!!

The cook was very knowledgeable, and it was great to be able to take in the info and food so we can make it at home. I wish she would have told us a little more alternatives to spicing the food and whatnot, but wonderful and fun.

This cooking class was fantastic. I did not know how many different things I could make with zuccinis. Evangelie was terrific and it was great to see how the breeks cook in every day life. We made spanakopita, zuccini balls, stuffed zuccini, rooster with tomatoes and pasta and tsaziki. The food was beautifull but we had so much that we hope the staff took the rest home. It was a great evening and suitable for all ages. Sure would do this again in another country.
