    You won’t be disappointed!
    Bill_R, Apr 2023
    Androniki and Pantelis generously opened their home and garden to provide a wonderful opportunity to learn how to cook a handful of traditional Greek dishes, starting with picking fresh herbs and vegetables. We even made fresh cheese! Dinner was delicious, we learned so much! And they shared recipes with us too so that we can attempt to recreate the dinner at home — though it will never be the same without their expert guidance and warm hospitality. We would highly recommend this lovely experience!
    Authentic and genuine

    Excellent cooking classe given by the kindest hosts in a calm environment. They are so genuine and are passionated about sharing their knowledge of the Cretan cuisine. This is a memorable experience that will remain in our hearts for a long time.

    Es war ein wunderschöner Abend mit sehr liebenswerten Gastgebern. Wir haben sehr leckeres griechisches Essen gekocht und haben viel gelacht. Richtig begeistert hat uns, die am Ende doch so einfache ,Herstellung von Schafskäse . Wir können nur jedem Kreta-Besucher das Kochen bei Androniki empfehlen !
