Then, enjoy one-on-one attention from your private host and learn all about classic Greek dishes. While many countries in the Mediterranean region take pride in their cuisine, Greece is passionate about it, and recipes are often handed down from generation to generation.

See how to wrap vine leaves around rice to make dolma, and try making stuffed vegetables, baked in a traditional wood-fired oven.
Toward the end of your session, sit down with your host and group to eat your creations! Dishes are paired with local wine, and you can also enjoy some home-baked bread, too. As you eat, chat about the Mediterranean diet, hearing about its health benefits and links to longevity.
