We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class with Stamatis. He was engaging and he made the process simple while giving us facts and history about Greek cooking and ingredients. Everyone in the class was friendly and enjoying themselves. And above all, the dinner we prepared was tasty and fulfilling. Highly recommend!

A story to share
Lise_A, Oct 2021
My friend and I will have this wonderful experience to bring back home and share it with our family. Chef Stam is an amazing teacher so generous and calm, not only showing the techniques of Greek cuisine but the history behind it. Eating our creations for dinner after with Stam and our classmates coming from all different places added to the expérience. This will be part of the stories we tell when we talk about our vacation. Thank you so much.

I'm really happy that you enjoyed our Cooking Class! You were exceptional cooking partners! Your Sincerely, Stam
A wonderful evening of food and laughter.
carlymw19, Oct 2021
This was an absolutely fantastic experience. Stam our chef was so lovely, gave us loads of tips and got us all involved in prepping our food. There was so much, it didn't seem like it but by the time we had eaten the spinach pie, salad, and tzatziki by the Mousakka we was all stuffed. Not many of us were able to eat the milk pie because we were so full. The food was absolutely delicious and I can't wait to replicate it all now we're home. The dinner we had overlooking the Acropolis was beautiful, the view was stunning and we had such a lovely group of people, while eating and drinking we had wonderful evening of chat and laughter. One of the loveliest trips we've done on our many travels.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
