This was hands down my favorite activity I did while visiting Athens! Worth every penny and the food we made was delicious! A few of us girls did the class, sipped on some wine, and enjoyed lots of laughs. Our instructor was patient and professional, but SO much fun. They even let you take the recipes home with you, so I can't wait to cook for my family. You will not regret booking this, you will remember it forever! They treated us like family, kept everything really clean, and made sure we had a great time. Thank you for having us, hopefully I will be back soon to do it again!

There were 5 of us ladies that signed up for this class and since we were the only ones it was like a private class for just us. Our instructor Eva was wonderful and gave us so much information about ingredients used in Greek cooking. I loved the way the class was designed and we all helped chop different ingredients and participated in putting each dish together. We made more dishes than we expected and after they cooked we sat at a table outside and got to enjoy the meal. Everything was delicious and some of the best food I ate while in Greece. We took leftovers back to our husbands and they got to try everything we made. I'm so excited to use the recipes and knowledge I learned to cook now that I am home. We all agreed that we were glad we decided to do this class and that it was a fun way to spend the evening. I recommend this class to anyone who loves food and/or cooking.

This class was fantastic! Our instructor was amazing, the food was phenomenal, and I loved that I had clear and easy to follow instructions for recipes to take back home with me. Since taking this class and returning home, I have made the recipes several times and have received nothing but compliments on my cooking. This was definitely a highlight of my trip to Athens!

Amazing time with a fantastic teacher! I've already tried and made all of the recipes since my wife and i got home. It was so much fun and we had a lot of interaction between all of the other classmates. If you want to learn how to cook Greek this is the way to go. She reminded me of how my Grandma cooks. Nothing extremely fancy, just great honest to goodness Greek food. You must do this while you're in Athens. You won't be disappointed.

We had a good time and a great group. Fofi was very personable and fun. She uses a lot, really a lot of extra virgin olive oil. That might affect some people. The food turned out really good even though it was made by the group. Maybe there should be more control over hand washing or people should have to wear gloves.

This cooking class was one of my favorite things I did in my two week trip to Greece! If you're debating doing this class, do it - you won't regret it!

The class was a great way to learn not only how to cook authentic Greek food but also about Greek culture and traditions. I was expecting to make 2-3 dishes and was pleasantly surprised at how many dishes we learned how to make - it was a good mix of appetizers, dinner, and dessert. In addition to making the recipes which we received a copy of at the end, we also got great tips on how to best prepare the ingredients. There was a ton of food and we were able to pack up leftovers at the of the dinner which made for a great lunch the next day!

This was the absolute best!!!! Fofi, the cook/chef was the best -- friendly, clear in her instructions, had the entire group involved the entire time while we were putting dish after dish together. We were laughing and having a wonderful time....then after we put it all together, the tavern cooked everything and we got to eat and eat and eat -- best food ever!!!! Since I have been home I have made 2 of the recipes and they are almost as wonderful as what we made. The entire group was friendly and the taverna was wonderful too. So worth every penny!!! I only wish my husband and other daughter had joined us because it was so much fun!!!!

This was such a fun class! The restaurant was easy to find in a central area. It was late starting but our instructor did not rush and we ended up being at the restaurant until after 10:00. This is an interactive class with lots of participation. We prepared an entire meal including dessert. The organization and flow made for a fun and informative time. My only issue was that there was so much food to eat. We were encouraged to take it with us but as we all were staying in hotels it was not possible. Hopefully the staff could enjoy what was left. I would highly recommend this class! You will not be disappointed.

This class was brilliant! We learned recipes, but we also had a cultural lesson. We laughed and made friends. We have already cooked the dishes we learned! Worth every penny!

Fofi is an amazing cook and teacher. We had a great group and had a blast preparing a huge delicious meal. And you get the recipes to boot! I learned several tricks from Fofi and how to pull the excess water from cucumbers for tzatziki and spinach for spinach and cheese pie. Would recommend to those who like to cook and eat!

A MUST DO!! Fofi, our instructor, was great. The food was good. The tips she shared were great. This was so much fun for our group of 6 ladies and it was fun to share this with new friends from Melbourne Australia and San Diego and Paris. Will be making these dishes since she gave us recipes

It was a fun experience. The lady (sorry can't remember her name) was lovely and down to earth. We learnt to cook some amazing food. I must admit it was probably the best food we ate in Athens. Highly recommend.

This is a cannot miss experience!!! It was beyond a great introduction to Greek food and cooking, the host makes you feel like you're cooking with family. The food and recipes were delicious and I have been cooking them ever since my trip! Now if I can only find the exact same fresh ingredients too here in the US!!

I have taken many cooking classes in various locations and I would rate this one of the best. Not only was it hands on with a great group of people, Fofi the instructor tells us new and different ways to make delicious food. After the class is over, the outside table was reserved for our group which is in the heart of the pedestrian street so its a great way to enjoy the meal that you have prepared. AND It IS A LOT OF FOOD! Delicious. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Fofi was outstanding and the course on July 13th, 2017 exceeded our expectations. We learned to make some authentic Greek dishes and now that we have returned from our trip are looking forward to trying them here.

What a great class. We had such a great time learning about Greek cuisine and the history of all the meals. I wish we would have done this on our first day instead of our last as it would've helped us pick out better meals during our visits.

Make sure you do this class, you won't regret it.

Eva is so wonderful and amazing. I take cooking classes every time I travel and consider myself to be an experienced cook. Often I don't always learn new things, but this class was different. We learned so much and her stories took us back to the kitchen with her grandmother. He truly felt like we were there. She was knowledgeable and informative. The tavern where the class is held is a must go to place. They made us feel like we were family and really went out of their way. I cannot tell you how wonderful this class is and how much we learned. We met wonderful new friends with Donna and Robbie. The food was great. Everyone was just wonderful

Fantastic experience! You'll cook a traditional 7-course meal with recipes from the hostess' own mother. Very enjoyable and you get a bit of history about the ingredients/plates as you go. The tasks are delegated between all participants: some will chop vegetables, some will prepare the spinach, etc.
The tavern cooks all the food and at the end of the prep you all get to enjoy the meal together, family style!

This class may have been the highlight of our time in Athens, cannot recommend it enough.

Our Greek cooking class was a very special part of the 3 days we had in Athens! Fofi, the instructor, was engaging and personable while making sure all members of the group got into the action with hands-on preparation. She kept up an agreeable, informative prattle about food, drink, Greek customs and sayings as the class went on that made the time and labor fly. Our group had two 15 year old girls who did not have much cooking experience, but they had a blast! We were joined by a Canadian grandmother and her 16 year old son, so there was some youthful giggling to complement the Laughing Yoga taking place above the tavern's cooking class room. Fofi provided written recipes when we left, so we were able to reproduce the scrumptous appetizers and roast lamb and potatoes upon our return stateside. This is a must do activity for foodies and families. Highly recommended!

We had an enjoyable time! Definitely a fun way to understand Greek cuisine at an introductory level. Through it, we also understood a little bit more about the culture, all thanks to Fofi and #39;s fun and bubbly personality!
