Know More about this tour

Based on colorful foods from both land and sea, the Greek diet is a perfect example of Mediterranean cuisine. On this small-group cooking class, dive right into the Greek food world, and learn about heartwarming stews, fresh shellfish and classic flavorings such as lemon, cinnamon and oregano.

Make your own way to the start point in Athens Monastiraki district, and then walk to a beloved local eatery with your host. Head inside to meet your chef, and start the lesson with a glass of raki (twice-distilled Greek spirit) while chatting with other food-lovers in your group.

With your chef at your side to show you how traditional Greek cooking is done, prepare and cook an authentic meal consisting of four starters and one main course, using fresh herbs and spices. Dishes vary each class, but typical specialties that you may make include melitazanopitakia (eggplant pies), roasted lamb, tzatziki and Greek salad.

At the end of the class, sit down with your group to enjoy the highlight of your evening: eating the feast that youve created with your own hands! Relax with wine and chat about cooking tips and Greek cuisine with your group.

  • 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.

  • So much fun !!!
