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.

Even in the low season end of November, the classes are running. Had a fantastic time with Eva and our group made up of an interesting mix of American ExPats, Canadian, Chinese, Dutch, and Scottish folks on Thanksgiving in Athens. the restaurant is easy to find and in a lovely, large private room, you get excellent instruction on how to make Spanakotiropita, Tzatziki Dip, roasted lamb with potatoes, zucchini balls, Dolmadakia gialantzi- vegetarian, Greek salad Horiatiki, and a Yogurt dessert with lemons. Everyone got along so well and we all got to sit out on the patio and enjoy our own prepared foods together with a glass of wine included.

I have some food intolerances especially onion and garlic and Eva was able to accommodate me, having my food separately made by me and cooked separately. Great service there, as not everyone is able to accommodate so easily. Would love to do a cooking class everywhere I travel, if it's as good as this one!

Fofi was a fantastic guide to the world of Greek cooking. She was full of entertaining and educational anecdotes about the food we were making and about Greek history. The number of students was just right for cooking a meal and conversing as we ate together afterwards. This is a very well done class, I can't recommend it highly enough.

After being dropped at the wrong end of the street and having to walk and. Ask directions 5 times we finally arrived 10 minutes late after a 35 minute hike. Not a good start. But things only got better from there and our group of 6 were soon settled in the very comfortable and we'll set up room for our lesson. Fofi quickly made us feel at home and showed her love and knowledge of Greek cooking. Over the next 1.5 hours or so we all made pr prepared roast lamb and potatoes, spanakopita, zucchini balls, tzatziki, and a lemon desert. I may have forgotten one or two, yes, dolmathes. Once the lesson was over we were seated out at the Tavern Diavlos and served our meal. This was the ideal way to finish the evening even though we just could not manage to get through all the food we had prepared. Later in the evening we witnessed a massive storm with sheet lightning and thunder and people scurrying for cover. However, we were all very happy sitting the refinishing our meal and drinks and enjoying a very Grek experience. We would recommend this to anyone, even if you don't know one end of a kitchen from the other.
