What You Can Expect

Greek Cooking Class in an Athens Tavern

Enjoy cooking delicious Greek dishes

Make your own way to central Athens, where you’ll join up with your host and walk over to a traditional Greek taverna. Meet your chef inside and begin the class with a glass of raki (twice-distilled Greek spirit) while chatting with your group mates.

The Greek diet is a classic example of Mediterranean cuisine, based on colorful foods from both land and sea. Dive right into the world of Greek cuisine with your chef, and learn about hearty stews, fresh shellfish and typical flavorings such as cinnamon, oregano and lemon.

Prepare an authentic meal under the guidance of your instructor, creating four appetizers and one main course, with plenty of fresh spices and herbs. While recipes tend to vary, expect to learn local favorites such as Greek salad, tzatziki, melitazanopitakia (eggplant pies) and roasted lamb.

After all of your hard work, sit down with your group to savor each of your dishes. Pair your menu with a complimentary glass of wine or a soft drink and chat with your fellow chefs while you eat. Your cooking class will conclude after the meal.

Fofi the teacher was great- passionate about real Greek cooking and ingredients, she was inspirational. She made sure the children in the group of 14 were included and happy. We ate the many dishes we helped to create - well tried to eat, there was a lot! My advice is to go to the class very hungry!

This class is so wonderful, and Eva the instructor is fantastic. We got recipes of all the dishes we prepared to bring home. The dishes we prepared were things that Eva cooks for her own family, and they were all things I definitely see preparing again. I highly recommend this class to anyone who likes cooking and wants to learn about Greek culture and cuisine. It's a lot of fun.
