Cook like an Albanian
Christine_B, Dec 2022
Lots of fun and great food! Excellent experience! Knowledge is the best souvenir of time spent in Albania!
Great Albanian Cooking Class
Alex_R, Nov 2022
The host was fun and informative. I learned to make some really good food. Definitely do not have any dinner plans afterward because you will be stuffed. There are plenty of accommodations for anyone who has allergies or dietary restrictions.
Highly recommend!
Yvin_H, Nov 2022
We had a great afternoon spending our time cooking and having fun together! Highly recommend! Be sure to start not too full, there will be plenty of food at the end.
Ella_H, Sept 2022
We had such a good time on this cooking class, and have recommended it to everyone we have met throughout Albania! Sindi was absolutely lovely and so knowledgeable about Albanian culture and cuisine. The price was very reasonable for the amount of food you prepare throughout the class, and we were also provided with wine an raki. An absolute must if you are visiting Tirana!
Not happy

I absolutely loved every minute of the cooking class with Sindi! It was great to know more about the country through this experience, thanks Sindi for making Albania a better place 💖

So good to experience a country via food and good human exchange. Indeed recommendable! Do it alone, with your familly/friends, fun all the way.
Must-do experience in Tirana.

Had the most amazing cooking class with Sindi today. The class size was just right and it is set in a lovely little kitchen near the center of Tirana. Sindi is a kind and patient teacher who knows how to cook great food. It was great fun and the food tasted great. Don't eat much before the class! Go hungry! Great fun and a great way to learn about Albanian cuisine and culture. Thank you Sindi!
Great activity for all levels
gs6k85njk2, Jun 2022
Fantastic, authentic experience suitable for all levels. I was a beginner so was given plenty of help my the host. We made 3 authentic Albanian dishes that tasted delicious along with plenty of wine! As a solo traveller, it was a great way to meet new people. I would highly recommend this experience.
Great cooking class
family, Jun 2022
We had a wonderful time. The hostess explained everything well and shared many suggestions. We had great cooking lessons and the food was delicious as was the homemade wine and raki.
Great experience to enjoy Albanian cousine
Juan_S, May 2022
I found this activity really interesting and original: for foodies like me, it's a pleasure not only to eat the main dishes of the country I'm visiting, but also to learn how to cook them. Sindi has organised an activity that, in a very friendly way, you can take part on the process of prepairing those dishes while sharing a great time and, after all, eat the final creations of the "new chefs" :) I would definitely recommend this activity, no matter if you go alone, with friends, with kids or by joining more people: you all will definitely enjoy the experience and learn about the food and the country. The only thing required is being ready to cook and eat :)

Excellent class
Robert_J, Apr 2022
We have been to many cooking classes in many countries. It was this class that we finally learned something new. The food was excellent, Cindy's teaching was on point, and we had fun! Completely recommended.
Best experience in Albania!
Paul_C, Oct 2021
Our cooking class was by far the best thing about our visit to Albania. Sindi was a brilliant host; she was friendly, fun and interesting and she helped us get a good understanding of local life, and food, in Tirana. We would highly recommend this activity. It was also very good value for money and all of the food (and wine) was fantastic. The cooking instructions were simple and easy to follow and the whole experience felt very relaxed and informal. Thank you Sindi.
Just great!
Stefanie_G, Sept 2021

Nice cooking class a good...
Vanessa_H, Sept 2021
Nice cooking class a good way to learn more about the Albanian cousin., a fun afternoon with Vine and Raki.
Jackelyn_M, Aug 2021
The recipes were very delicious and the instructions were very easy to follow. I really liked that the ingredients were just every day regular pantry items so I can definitely recreate these amazing Albanian dishes at home. It was a experience and I am very happy I took this cooking class.
Andy and Cindy are knowledgeable and hospitable.
James_B, Jul 2021
The teachers were nice and helped us a lot, without being in the way. They were encouraging and helpful. They assisted us with transportation to and from the class as well as helped us recover our phone from the cab that we departed from. They shared their homemade lemonades and wines. They allowed my daughter to have an item she asked for, which I appreciated it.
