Lovely experience! Stam, our chef, was wonderful. He was warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. The venue is perfect, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting the other participants. Making the food was fun and educational. (We were hungry when we arrived, so my only suggestion would be to have some appetizers available at the beginning of the session.) The dinner atmosphere was festive and intimate. The food was amazing and plentiful. Highly recommend!

Stam did an excellent job explaining and helping us prepare our farm to table meal from beginning to end. It was fully hands on and we had so much fun learning the Greek cuisine. Would highly recommend this great experience

Stam is an enthusiastic and charming instructor. His knowledge of history, cuisine, tradition, and science is remarkable. We learned techniques and skills that can be used with any cuisine. And we prepared the best food in all of Athens!

This cooking class was our first experience in Athens and what a great call it was! Chef Stam was extremely charming and patient. We learned how to make some very traditional Greek food and then we got to eat it all while enjoying the view of the amazing Acropolis. ❤️ We highly recommend this fun class especially if you want to recreate some Greek dishes back home. Thank you Stam and your staff for your kindness and for an experience we will never forget!

Phenomenal Experience!
Jennifer_T, Nov 2022
We booked this experience to celebrate Thanksgiving in Greece as a family. As one non meat eating mom, 10 year old son and dad - we ALL learned so many things, were engaged and accommodated. Chef Fotis Paravas is a master and a wonderful teacher. The hotel restaurant which we had the class was easy to find and gorgeous. He truly makes this experience magic. The menu we prepared is do delicious and well explained we hope to bring the skills home. Take a break from sight seeing and go do this!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Jennifer, I was an absolute pleasure hosting you in our cooking class! I am extremely glad that you had such a nice time! Best regards, Fotis
Leara_S, Nov 2022
Relaxed light atmosphere, friendly humor of our Chef's dad jokes. We can't wait to try and make these dishes at home. Our Chef included everyone in the preparation, answered all of our questions. A wonderful experience!!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Dear Leara, It was my pleasure to have you in our Cooking Class! I am happy that you had a fun experience and enjoyed it as much as I did. Yours Sincerely, Your Chef
Good food and great fun
Joyce_M, Nov 2022
Our chef was very engaging, fun and knowledgeable. For those of us who cook, he provided us with some great recipes and tips. For some of our group who had no experience in the kitchen, he showed a great deal of patience and made sure to involve them. We all enjoyed dining on our creations afterwards with a spectacular view of the Acropolis at night as our backdrop. It was a great experience for all of us and I would highly recommend it as something out of the ordinary tours when travelling.
