Cooking Classes

tour_story

From ancient times to today, Greek eating habits have changed so radically that it’s difficult to summarize the gastronomic culture of the country in a few words. Since those days, so many new fruits and vegetables have arrived on these shores, so many people have introduced different ways of cooking them, from both East and West, that tracing the roots and trends of traditional Greek cuisine is complicated.

But one thing has always been true: the emphasis on authentic raw ingredients, unadulterated and grown locally – simple dishes, cooked slowly and without fussy sauces, seasoned with herbs and olive oil rather than exotic spices, with love and imagination.

We offer a truly hands-on private cooking experience combined with a fun dinner party environment. Just like getting an invitation from a local Greek friend! We have a Greek coffee with friends in the morning, take a walk to the Athens Central Market to choose fresh ingredients for our recipes, we greet you with ouzo and meze, we enjoy the meal we cooked with great greek wine, and, of course, with the sounds of Greek music.

Our small class size enables us to teach in a totally hands-on fashion — which means you get to cook (and eat!) each and every item. Each class includes a four course meal, ouzo and wine:

You will learn the art of cooking greek meals, from the very first cut to the very last taste.

At the end of each class, all guests gather at our large table to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
